Dear all 2020 international graduates,
Time is like a river. It never stops running. It seems yesterday that you entered XJTU with curiosity and hope, but today you are going to graduate and enter the next stage of your life around the world.
The year of 2020 is so special and memorable. You are deeply appreciated for the efforts and cooperation in the university’s fight with the COVID-19 pandemic. Xi’an Jiaotong University will continue to enforce epidemic prevention and control measures with the health and safety of all students and staff as its priority.
In order to help you graduate smoothly, School of International Education reminds you as follows:
1. Visa or Residence Permit
(1) 2020 graduates, who will continue their study in Xi’an Jiaotong University from the coming September, can apply for extension of residence permit with the admission package, including the Admission Notice, Visa Application Form (JW201/202 form), before the current residence permit expires.
(2) 2020 graduates, who will not continue their study and find no flight back to their own countries before the residence permit expires, can apply for one-month extension. If they still cannot leave one month later, apply for another month extension, and so on. (Note: Valid proof of incapacity to leave shall be provided along with the extension application. Malicious detention is prohibited.)
2. Post-graduation Destination
