Can I study while on H1 B visa?


Recommended Posts

I am short of 8 credits for a licensure. I can do 3 online courses from a community college to get me there. The college that I am approaching is telling me that I cannot be studying on H1 B. And I cannot find anything online saying its illegal or not allowed on H1 B. Can someone explain the implication of me doing the courses? I'll be done in 4 months if I did do them.

As long as you fulfill the H1 requirements, i.e., work fulltime and get paid appropriately, you can study on the side while on H1.

A competent registrar at a decent university would know that.

There may be some clueless registrars at some shady institution...
