I am planning to do Graduate certificate Course in health informatics and wish to apply for F1.
Please advise me on the following:
The course is of total 15 credit hours. I wish to divide the course as (6+6+3) Or (6+9) credit hours.
As per F1 Visa requirement, candidate should be enrolled as a full time student. In either option, the first 6 credit hours are for online course. Are these credit hours counted if I apply for f1 visa? What are the requirements of credit hours for F1?
I am planning to apply for f1 in December 2016 and my current H4 visa is valid till April 2017 with the possibility of extension. ( I have 2 more years for the 6 years clock to complete).
A) If my F-1 visa is still in process and my H-4 visa expires,am I out of status? B) Can my husband file my H4 extension? -If answer to B is YES, then do I need to file for change of status from H4 to F1 again? - If answer to B is NO, then what is the possible solution? C) Should I wait for H4 renewal and then apply for change of status?
Your advice will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance…
