Departments must request a change of program dates on the DS-2019 form if a visitor will not be able to enter the U.S. and report their arrival to DCISS within 25 days of their start date. Each request to change the start and/or end date can only come from the academic department (not the scholar). An additional fee and updated financial documents may be required if the new program dates constitute a longer program duration than originally planned.

Requests to change program dates should be submitted to DCISS by filling out the following online form:
