When an F-1 student’s I-20 is terminated, the student loses status/becomes “out of status”. There are two options to regain active status.
1. Travel Option
Depart the U.S. and re-enter with a new initial I-20 from the school where you lost status or from a new school authorized to issue I-20’s. This option requires the student to return to his/her home country. The student may also need a new visa issued by the local U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the student’s home country.
2. Reinstatement Option
Not everyone is eligible for reinstatement. The common eligibility requirements are below.
