Successful Change of Status to F-1 student! We recently had a Change of Status Application to F-1 Student Approved by USCIS on behalf of a foreign national. The international student had the change of status to F-1 student status approved for Duration of Status (D/S) to attend university in the United States. In this case, USCIS issued a Request for Further Evidence. The overall processing time for the change of status to F-1 student was approximately 16 months.
Foreign nationals who intent to study in the United States can change status to F-1 student in the United States with US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). However, you are not allowed to start your studies before USCIS approves the application for change of status to F-1. It can take months for USCIS to process your application for change of status to F-1 student. Please note that time is of the essence when filing a change of status to F-1 and you should contact an immigration attorney as soon as possible. This is because USCIS must receive the F-1 change of status application before your current status expires.
