    Hi,
    i am presently in US on H4. I have recently got admit from one of the reputed US universities for MS
    I have following doubts
    1) I wish you apply for change of status staying in US. What is the procedure and where can I find the info?
    2) Can I show my husband and father both as sponsors?
    3) suppose my sponsor 1 says he will will support 50k and sponsor 2 writes 50 k affidavit . Then will these sponsers have to show financial capability of 50 k each or sponsor 1 can show total assets of 80 k and sponsers 2 can show total assets of 30 k during visa interview will be fine?

    First, unless practical training is important to you, don't bother to switch to F1; you may attend school as an H4. There are a number of advantages to studying as an H4 including the ability to take less than a full load and also, in many states, to qualify for in-state tuition. If you do wish to change status to F1, simply file an I-539 with all required supporting documents. Your school should be able to help you file the I-539.

    Hi,
    thanks for the response.
    what can cause a rejection of change of status from h4 to f1 ?
    After I get change of status approved, If I travel to home country before my course completes then while coming back are there chances of f1 getting rejected? If it gets rejected will i lose my h4 as well ?
