  • Can I study on H4

    My wife is H4 visa status. Can someone tell me if a person on H4 can study in a US school or he/she has to convert the status to F1.

    All replies appreciated.

    H4 can enroll in university

    H4 status can enroll in any university and whereever applicable if you qualify you can even get instate tuition. H4 cannot work on campus or anywhere. Even H1 can take courses if they like.

        Dis Advantages being H4 student

        You will not be allowed to take one year practical optional training(one year cool work permit) without a valid F1 status. Start schooling get a I 20 and change the status. May take 6-8 months but no risk.

            I am not sure, but I suppose a H-4 would not be able to recieve compensations like teaching assistantships or research associateships as also a tuition waiver in lieu of such assistantships as that would amount to remuneration. So the best bet is a F-1.
