      I completed my masters in 1 year and 4 months. During my last semester I did only 6 credits which is less when compared to a full time student. So I filled my reduced course load. So you too should fill reduced course load. Because If you go to India in this mean time, Immigration officer recognizes you as a student who is under F1 rules with the help of reduced course load form
