Hi,

I would like to highlight few things before jump to the main issue. My H1-B was denied on December last week, so I planned to join university and got admission for march intake. I transferred my SEVIS record 2 weeks ago to the new university. Today, I was told by my new university that when they look at my I-20 in their SEVIS database they said it was transferred to them in completed status from my previous university. They wanted to know why my record was completed? I asked this question from my previous university DSO she said "SEVIS record was automatically completed by SEVIS in November 2017. I think it must have had something to do with applying for an H1-B because later it says change of status denied – and still showing your record was completed."

My question is having said that SEVIS record was completed automatically by SEVIS. Would my DSO will be able to re-open that same SEVIS record again? If not would I be able to get new SEVIS ID , get new i-20 and stay in USA? Or do I need to get new SEVIS ID and depart USA and re-enter with new SEVIS and i-94 admission? I have to mention here my Student visa is already expired last year in August, so it would be a daunting task to obtain the visa again since I already completed 1 masters degree in the states.

I really need suggestion in my case how to proceed further. I am really confuse and tense at the same moment. Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated. 

Thanks,

Ammad
