Jetstream2 Allocation Extensions and Renewals

If your allocation is expired or close to expired and has adequate SUs remaining for the resource(s), you may request an extension if you need 3-6 months to complete your work or to prepare for a research allocation. If you are planning to continue your research for another year (or more), you should pursue a renewal of your allocation.

Detailed information about the extension request process is available from the XSEDE Manage Allocations page.

Please note: Extensions are not a substitution for the renewal process.

A renewal is ALWAYS preferred over an extension. Please see below for information on renewing a startup allocation.

If you have a startup allocation and you are planning to stay under the startup limits (as noted on the Jetstream Resources page), you may continue to renew your startup and not have to enter the research allocations cycle.

  • Research allocations may be extended once with adequate justification.
  • Research allocations are renewable on a quarterly basis. More information may be found on the XSEDE Research Allocations page
