  • Re-entry for second master's degree

    Hello there,

    I graduated from Master's degree in December, 2013. I was on valid OPT status until October after which I applied for an MBA program and received an acceptance and the I-20 that starts in Jan. 2015. I have a U.S visa until August 2015. I am traveling out of states in December and planning to return a few days before my semester starts in Jan. 2015. My question is: Can I travel with an MBA I-20 (issued on Oct. 29, 2014) and a valid visa without having any problems to re-enter the U.S? Will I be considered as a continuing student even though this is my first semester for second master's degree?

    Also, my I-20 does not have third page signature (as this is my first semester as a MBA student), and I believe that criteria is only if the I-20 is older than 6 months. Correct me if I am wrong.

    I will highly appreciate for providing accurate information.

    Thank you so much.

      You should not have a problem traveling with your existing visa and the new I-20. You should check with the DSO to make sure that the I-20 you have no is endorsed for travel.

          1. Go ahead, no problem at all
          2. If your DSO says so, probably you mite not need. Not sure

            1) yes you can no problem
            2) no issues as its your first semester it will be consider as continuum and the I20 should be no lesser than 6 months dated
