    So this is a very common question, if your visa expires while you are in the US and completing your program, you're completely fine as long as your 20 document is up to date and showing that your graduation date is in the future or that you're currently on optional practical training. If your passport is expiring, you will need to renew that. But you can do that while you're in the United States. Once you leave the country, you will need to renew the visa to come back in.
