Default Eligibility period extension and pending verification.

Hi. My eligibility period for step one is Dec-Jan_feb 2013. I have received the scheduling permit though i havent scheduled the date yet. I want to extend the eligibility period to March April May. On Oasis it says my credentials have been received but verification is pending. I have following questions:

1) how long the extension process may take?

2) Not having verified credential will pose problems in extending the period?

You call the ECFMG and check the status of verification and tell about extension.They will guide you.

I had similar problem,I had to wait till verification,I sent a fax to ecfmg asking for extension.Within 3 working days I had my eligibility period extended after verification was done.

So first call the ECFMG.
