  • Class registration before Oct 1st

    Hi, I have this question and would appreciate if you can please help me out with this ASAP as I am running out of time.

    I was on F1 visa status. one of this company applied for H1B visa and it got approved. But since the H1B starts on oct1st, i need to maintain student status. I was trying all the possible things to avoid paying fee to the university for the courses which i dont want to do at this moment by registering now and cancelling after Oct1st, but couldnt succeed as I cannot cancel any course before Oct1st to maintain status and after Oct1st if i cancel, i am not gonna get any refund. I am loosing close to 8,000$ fees. Even trying admission in any community college is not working as its very short time to fulfill their requirement of getting transcript, Toefl.etc...Even the univ is not giving me full time CPT. so anybody has any thoughts what's the best thing I can do??? Going out of the country and coming back on H1b stamping is also risky. Would appreciate if anybody knows any community college where the admission is easily done without going through Toefl, transcripts etc... or any other options by which I can be in status till Oct1st. Thanks a lot in advance.

    Where you on OPT? If so you qualify for CAP GAP,
    If not you can just stay in this country and not work till Oct 1.
    Which city are you in to advise community college? Here in Dallas they don't ask Toefl, and admission might take just one day. Be more clear as wat was you status before, I don't think you should waste 8K as situation can be easily handled

      More information from reader: This person is not yet done with his masters. He is having 2 more semesters before completing his masters. Company sponsored him and his H1 got approved.

        Then the best option would be apply for CPT with 1 credit, you could very well start working for that company from August itself till Oct 1st on CPT then on Oct 1st inform your school you are withdrawing your F1 and got converted to H1.
        Also you could talk to Intl office in advance, they shouldn't mind according to me and are usually helpful.

          Or just change to the University which gives CPT form Sem 1 and charges you $300 per credit..

            Yeah you could do that too, but getting admission this late might be a prob too.

              Why aren't you getting CPT when you have coursework pending?

                he period after expiry of your OPT and before the start of H1B is called Cap Gap. You don't need to worry about it. You don't need to register anywhere. Don't go out of the country that will work. You are good. Dont join in any school what so ever. Kindly give me those 2000 . I was just kidding. Have fun....
