Part-time Masters while working on H-1B with approved I-140

Recommended Posts


2018 will mark the beginning of my 7th year on H-1B. I already have approved I-140 from my old employer with H-1B transfer approved until 2020 for my current employer. My new employer will most likely start the I-140 process later this year.  My wife is on H4 with EAD.

Both of us have bachelor degrees. Now, we are planning to do part-time masters in one  of the accredited colleges in the U.S. We would like to know if this will jeopardize our status in anyway. Are we allowed to study part-time whlie staying/working on H-1B and H4 EAD? If yes, will it affect my approved I-140 once I complete the course successfully? What other implications we might have to endure due to this?

On H1, you can study part time, as long as you continue to fulfill the H1 requirements, i.e., working for the employer.

A person on H4 can study full time.
