  • Have not been out of status for more than 5 months or demonstrate that the failure to file within the 5-month period was the result of exceptional circumstances.
  • Have not engaged in unauthorized employment, and
  • Are not deportable on any grounds.
  • Are registered full time.

Please consult with the International Programs and Services Office for reinstatement application procedures.
