  • Inquiry regarding Transfer between different universities ?

    My F1 visa is already expired and my OPT Stem will expire on Nov 25, 2014. I am planning to work till the end of my OPT Stem and in the meanwhile take an admission in a new university for Spring Session starting in January. My main concern is to maintain a legal status in USA after my OPT Stem expires so that I can join the new university for spring session starting in 56 days (from the date of expiry of my OPT Stem). My questions:

    1. If I work till Nov 25 and tell my present university to transfer my SEVIS on Nov 25 to the new university for the session starting on 10th January, am I legally allowed to stay in US till the beginning of the next session in Jan ?

    2. or Do I have to leave the country and then reenter with a new VISA and new I-20 ?

    3. Shall I transfer my SEVIS before expiry of OPT Stem ?

    4. Can the new university generate a I-20 for me 56 days before the spring session starts ? or as long as I have an admission, it should not matter when the I-20 is generated ?

    I wont be working for that time period (Nov 26 2014- Jan 10 2015)

      Can anyone help me with this doubts ? How shall I maintain F1 status once my OPT Stem expires and the new school session starts 56 days later ? The new school will generate I-20 in December .
