Hi,

Congrats dear! :-)

If USCIS approved the change of status from H4 to F1, What do we get? I mean is it Approval notice or petition? Please give me reply as soon as possible.

as she did not get a RFE...then does that mean that the school had sent a revised I20 to USCIS by themselves.....

Updated I20 is not always necessary. USCIS can get the latest i20 details from SEVIS system. I dont know the reason why USCIS asks applicant to send new i20 in some cases.

I have applied for the COS in Sep 2017.
EAC1790XXXXXX

It went to VSC. I will be done with my course by June 2018. As I have the quarter system. I can go for stamping in march 2018 with new I-20.

Can anyone please answer the below queries:-

1) Should I withdraw the COS application (mandatory by university) and then try for stamping or do I have any hope on getting the F1 approval till May 2018?

2) If F1 - COS is approved during my course, can I go for the stamping after the completes and I am on OPT?

Thanks in advance for your replies. .

Hi,

Applied for COS from H4 to F1.

Received date: March-23-2017
Decision: Denied on Jan-16-2018

I waited for 10 months i got denial letter in email. I did not receive any RFE before. I don't know what went wrong. This is so frustrating and disappointment for me after a very long wait. What are the available options for me now ??

Hey there...

I am just curious about your case....in your denial letter does it state the reason for denial....also have you contacted your schools' ISSO....?Are you planning to hire a lawyer...?

My case was received on April 21st and after reading your case status I am very worried about it....
there are a couple of people whose applications were received after my received date and they have got an acceptance few of days back.....

Do reply...
Thanks in advance...

to shruthijoshi:



Sorry to hear, if your i94 expiry date was more than 30 days in past the COS will be denied. What was your i-94 expiry date? and had you filed H4 extn? If you have any reason mentioned, you can still challenge the decision I believe.

Hi everyone,
I just stumbled upon this forum while searching for information on change of status B2 to F1. My application was received on May 25th 2017.
Been waiting for 8 months now for a response.
Please does anyone know if there is an existing forum for people in my category?

Sorry to hear that! don't get too frustrated, I am sure there are still options. As the last resort, you always can go home and try for a new F1.

Another potential reason of denial though - did you check with your school? Could it be that they didn't update/defer your I-20 and your SEVIS got cancelled? I would talk with them asap.

Could you please confirm - you said you received by email. Do you also see the status change if you check your case online?

Oh wow, it is good you are consulting with a lawyer. Wish you all the best!

I didnt know uscis sent emails, i thought it was either mail or case status on their website.
I need to start checking my email too.

Has anyone heard anything on May applications at vermont service center?
