H4 to F1, how long do I have to stay on F1


Recommended Posts


My wife applies for change on status from H4 to F1. We started this process right when she was about to start school. It usually takes 3-4 months to complete this application process, but now she is already completed her 6 courses (2 semesters) in school.

My question is, does she has to be on F1 for a specific amount of time before she can file her OPT/CPT or is it just that she should have a valid F1 visa when she does that.
