Question Can I extend my eligibility period

Hey guys.. i was wondering if you could extend the 3 month eligibility period. I know that within the 3 months you can change dates but can you choose a date outside the 3 months that you have blocked??

Yes, you can extend your eligibility period. You are given a one-time chance to do so. But you can only extend it when your current eligibility starts.

In your IWA account, you will see there a link on extending eligibility. It's a quick process and it will not take more than 5 mins. A payment of around $65 is required.

hey is it the same process of extending your eligibility period if you have not graduated, or do u have to get the documents signed from your school again?
i applied the first time without graduating and i still have not completed my degree, so do i have to submit some new forms?
