F1 to H4 COS - Compulsory to take classes while petition is pending?


Recommended Posts

Is it compulsory to take classes and maintain the F1 status until the H4 COS is approved which may take 6-8 months. Or can she stop taking classes, stay in US and wait on i539 receipt without any consequences

My wife is currently doing Masters on F1. We have filed form i539 for changing her status to H4 effective from end of current semester -january 3rd, 2021. She wants to abandon her Masters from Jan 3, 21 and finish it later.
