Passport Status for F-1 Visa

#1
Hello!

I will be applying for the student visa in August for a 22month program but my passport is expiring in July 2013. My country is in the list of countries that offer passport extension but I really do not understand, does this mean that I can enter the US with my passport and renew while I am there or what?

Expecting great responses.

Thank you.
