Thread: H1B cap-exempt grace period/ H1b to F1?

    Question H1B cap-exempt grace period/ H1b to F1?


    I am currently on H1b (cap-exempt.)I was working for university A. My last day of working was middle of June 2019.

    I got another job offer from university B by this time. But for some internal legal issues, university B told me that it will take at least 3 weeks to process all the paper works and submit a petition for H1B transfer. Which will exceed the 60 days of grace period. In this situation my question:

    1) Now what should I do to maintain my status?
    2) Should I think of going back from H1b to F1?

    Please advise any solution which might save me from out of status. Whatever might be the possible solution I have to go through on that path. Please advise me.

    Thank you in advance.
