View Full Version : COS from H1B to F1, while H1Extension is in progress

04-22-2014, 11:40 PM

What are the risks in applying for CoS from H1B to F1 while H1 Extension is in progress?

My employer will be extending my H1B visa (No option of premium proc.) and in the meantime I'm considering joining full-time Master's program via a CoS to F1.

Can these two applications go simultaneously? or Am I looking at some risks of clash?

(If yes, then I may need to quit now. Go to my home country, attend F1 interview. This is difficult for me in my current position)

Can't control extension application without alerting employer, which means losing job and eventually H1B.
