F1-OPT to new F1


Recommended Posts

I finished by MBA on a F1 visa (expires on Apr 19, 2022) and now I am working on a F1-OPT (expires on Jul 23, 2020). I got accepted into the PhD program (starts in Aug 26, 2020) in the same school with funding and tuition waiver. So, I am planning to go back to school. How can I do that without leaving USA?


Hence, I have the following questions -


Do I need to get a new F1-visa? Or, do I need a COS only?

Can I apply for the new F1-visa or COS from within USA? Where and how should I apply for that?

What is the best path that I should follow?


Thank you in advance.
