H4 to F1 while spouse h1 transfer is pending


I am currently on H4 got admission in a university which allows cpt from second quarter. My classes are starting from September. I know that I can pursue my studies while on H4 so I am going to do that and simultaneously work on F1 conversion.

My question is :

My spouse switched employer and his H1B Transfer is pending, so will I be able to submit our previous I94 along with the receipt of the current petition? Or should I wait until the current petition is approved before I apply for my change of status.

Really appreciate a response.


The I-94 number would not change due to transfer petition. It will only have a new expiration date. So you can use that I-94 number for this COS filing.
