H4 to F1


Recommended Posts

My wife is willing to pursue graduate program at X university. Currently my visa status is H1 and my wife's visa status is H4.  I would like to know answers for below questions.


If she wishes to convert from H4 to F1 in the future before completing masters ( eg: during 2nd or 3rd Semester) can she do that ?


Saying that, once her F1 is approved, does she will have any issues while applying for OPT or does she considered just like any other regular F1 student ? 


Is there any time limit or university rules for a student when applying COS from H4 to F1 without effecting her OPT ?


These answers will help us in taking a decision. Thank you so much in advance.
