F1 - H1b/work visa transition process


Recommended Posts


I am a first year full time PhD student on F1 status.I completed my masters during 2011 and was working on OPT and stem extension from 2011 to 2013. I applied to H1 during 2013 April and was accepted, but I joined my PhD thereby withdrew my application. Now,here are my questions.


I wanted to know if I could convert my full time status of a student to a part time PhD student immediately?


Whether the transition needs to be done only during the month of April when the H1 filing starts?


What is the process involved?


On what other visa's I could work legally?


Any information in this regard is greatly appreciated.
