H1B to F1 using I-539


Recommended Posts


I have received an admit for a P.hD. I am currently on H1B visa which expires on 03Aug2017. My company had already filed for H1B extension which is under review. I plan to submit form I-539 to USCIS for changes of status from H1B to F1. Will there be a conflict since USCIS will have both my applications H1B extension and change of status (H1B to F1)? The change of status processing time is quite long. What happens if my change of status gets approved after August (intended start of the program)? Will I be out of status? 

Please let me know! Thanks in advance!
