How to keep your F-1 status active while you are off-campus:
- Get approval from Carleton’s Off-Campus Study Office for any non-Carleton program
- Register as a full-time student
- Notify ISL and get a travel signature on your I-20 before you leave the U.S.
- Check your Carleton email while your are abroad
Other important information:
All Carleton students who participate in a summer program are required to take the following winter term off from Carleton. For F-1 and J-1 student this has implications for your status. Please see the information on our Leave of Absence page for information on how this will affect you.
