I am on h4 visa right now. I am planning to join college to do my masters( obvious reason to get a job) I qualify for in state tuition fees . So my question is , can I study on h4 for few courses and then later on change my visa status to f1 so that I qualify for OPT?
if yes , how much time I have to be on f1 to get qualified for OPT? How is the process of changing the visa from h4 to f1. I mean do I need to get it done in India or I can do it in US itself.
I have computer science masters degree… Will this exempt me from taking few courses… Ur help will be highly appreciated… Other inputs and suggestions are very welcome. Thanks
