F-1 status for this student has been automatically extended to September 30, [current 

year]. The student is authorized to remain in the United States. This is pursuant to 8 

CFR 214.2(f)(5)(iv) and 8 CFR 274a.12(b)(6)(iv), as updated April 8, 2008, in a rule 

published in the Federal Register (73 FR 18944). Additional information about the 

automatic extension can be found on the Student and Exchange Visitor Program Web
