PUBLIC’S QUESTION: Drop off the education and immigration status
I get tired of communicating with my uni’s staffs and their law and logics or it is better to say lack of logic. I really hate this envirnmoment and I wonder if I leave my education what would be the consiquences for me as F1 visa holder. What I can do to prevent immigration status or it is better to ask after leave my universuity how I can stay at US legally? what are my options?
in future if I want to continue my education would this leaving affect any academic performances of mine?
If you decide you want to leave, you should talk with your new desired school. You may wish to tour the school, ask other international students if they like it, and ensure that you can get in. Once you apply and confirm that the new school will take you, you should notify your current school of your intent to transfer. You current school should in turn will update your status in SEVIS as a transfer-out student (to be released at the end of the semester or session, or earlier if you request). It seems that you can cancel your transfer during this wait time, just in case you change your mind.
After this transfer wait time, your new school should be granted access to your SEVIS to complete your transfer and issue the I-20 transfer form. There appears to be a deadline to contact the DSO at your new school (15 days before new school start date), so you should leave plenty of time to contact the new school’s DSO and to make sure that the new school’s DSO updates SEVIS that you have transferred and enrolled (you should get a copy of this form).
Considering the risk of losing your F-1 status by just dropping out, you may want to weigh all your options an make sure that you want to leave or transfer.
