The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has temporarily stopped allowing nonimmigrants to extend or change their status online.
USCIS stopped accepting electronically-filed versions of Form I-539, Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status, on June 15, 2015. Applications filed before that time will not be impacted. USCIS is using this time to update its electronic filing system to accommodate recent changes to the form.
For now, nonimmigrants who need to extend or change status should file paper versions of the form. You can find additional information about Form I-539 at the USCIS website: http://www.uscis.gov/i-539.
