I am an F1 student and I need to file an extension due to the fact my employer gave me a wrong W2. I can't file for an extension through Sprintax, can I do it here?

I did not know I could not file taxes here, so I entered my information in Turbotax and Sprintax. Nevertheless, my employer apparently gave me the wrong W2, bc they never registered me as a F1 student. They're now fixing this, but it will probably not be ready by Monday.. how do I file for an extension online? Can I do that through you? And is that free of charge? If not: what do I need to do?

For the 1040-NR, use TurboTax EasyExtension.  It is a simple, online tool that allows you to file a tax extension in minutes. Try it here.

Heads up - filing Form 4868 only provides you with an extension of time to file. You must still pay 100% of the tax you owe by the original filing deadline to avoid interest and late-payment penalties.
