will it be a problem if i transfer from state university to private university during h1b stamping.

hello, currently I am doing masters in mechanical engineering in cal state university fullerton (1st semester). I am planning to transfer to Lawrence Tech University (private university). Will it be a problem while applying H1b and during stamping will V.O will ask why did you transfer from state university to private university. I am unclear about the above question. Please help me to overcome those problems.


As long as both are SEVIS approved schools, you should have no problem. The reason for school change is usually the availability of a course that the other university did not offer (example: both schools offered diesel mechanics but second school had a course on alternate fuel burning efficiency in diesel engines). I don’t think this question will be asked though as your H-1B credentials (education versus job being offered) are the primary focus.
