Changing Immigration Status

Title: Changing Immigration Status to and from F-1


Working anywhere in international education requires knowledge beyond just F-1 status.  It is also very important that you understand how to advise those who want to change status to F-1 and out of F-1 status.  This can include, but is not limited to, B1 and B2, H1-B, H-4, J visa holders, K-fiancĂ© visas, and those seeking permanent residency.

This webinar training will explain who can and can't change status in the U.S.  We will also cover the technical aspects of actually changing status.

This one hour webinar focuses on changing status to F-1 and from F-1.  Topics included are:

  • The I-539 form
  • Who is eligible and ineligible to change
  • Changing from a certain status to F-1
  • Changing out of F-1 status to H-1B or Permanent Residency
  • Other statuses
  • What if they can't change?
  • SEVIS Processes
