Pending AOS and Daughter's Admission to school

Recommended Posts


My daughter has pending adjustment of status and the college she applied to is considering her as an international student. One of the option that I am thinking about is to go out of the country to renew her I-94. Should I be concerned about this approach as I have heard people are having issues on re-entering the country?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

JoeF, Thank your response. Initially she was considered as an international student, after I submitted i-94, she was considered as a eligible non-citizen or a local student. College authorities had informed me that they had forwarded the docs to homeland security for review. I am thinking it would be the same after I extend her I-94 by going out of the country.

Hi Murali,


    I am not sure why you will need a new I 94. Anyways most of the states consider your daughter(dependent) as a local if you work/live (legally) in the same state continuously for a period of time before admission. Check the school's definition of local/non-local student. You didn't mention which status you are in right now.
