Changing H1 from F1

Recommended Posts

Hi members, while on F1 and working FT using CPT can an employer file H1 if the candidate has only a foreign degree although the candidate enrolled and working towards a US degree or does the candidate have to complete the course requirements and remain in OPT period for this? Thanks.

Hi gopalkrishna, can you please clarify what do you mean by 'risky'? if filed, the H1 would come under general quota i.e. 65k visas right? this seems legal to me. are you saying that it's highly likely that it'll be rejected?
