Additional requirement for Non-immigrant ED visa extension

Please note that there is a new additional requirement for extending your
one-year Non-immigrant ED visa: the Certificate of Classmate

It is a one-page form that a classmate of yours has to fill out,

or another international student. One student can certify only two
classmates per year. The form is valid for 15 days only, so do it less
