HI guys.

You are helping students regading questions. I have few questions. can you help me.(


1. I am in F1 status doing masters, I am in my last semester and left with 3 credit i.e (one subject). I took cpt in here instead of subject . I want to travel to india in feb for almost 20 days for my sister marriage. Will that be any problem in the immigration.?

2. If in case there is any problem in cpt. can I drop cpt and take an online subject which is completely web based. So If I travel to india and while coming back is there any problem in immigration asking me this is an online subject and you dont need to come back to us, and complete your masters in india itself??.

According to my university rules, If you are in last semester left with one subject they will not give permission to register for online subject. I need to have a strong reason The above are the two cases and which is helpful in my situations can you please suggest me.

Thank you

You need to ask your adviser if it’s okay to travel to India during the semester while on CPT. Also, you are not considered to be in valid F-1 status when taking online classes.

Hello I am facing the same problem.. Did you get any reply or did you face it? Can you let me know if I can travel to India if I have only 3 credit hours left with me?
