A person who wants to study in the United States may be eligible for a student visa. Student visas allow international students to legally live and study in the U.S. while they work toward their degrees. There are several types of student visas, so it is important to determine which one you qualify for and which is the best option for your circumstances. You may qualify for the student and exchange visitor program. An experienced immigration attorney will assist you in reviewing your needs and helping you with the visa application process.
Three main types of student visas are available through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
It is important to note that students with an F1 or J1 visa are generally allowed to work only on a limited basis while they study. They may be allowed to work on campus for up to 20 hours, but employment is not guaranteed. Therefore, students must have the funds necessary for their studies, along with room and board.
To begin with, you will need to verify your eligibility with the school where you plan to attend classes. Each school has its own criteria that you must meet to get accepted as a student. You must have financial support available to cover your expenses while you attend school. Remember that, at the most, you will only be able to work part-time, and therefore, you must prove your finances without working in the U.S. You must also have proof of health insurance if you require medical care while in the country.
In addition, you must also meet the general requirements for entry into the United States. You will want to verify your eligibility with help from a skilled immigration attorney. Your lawyer will review the specific qualifications and help you with the process.
Student visas are provided for the sole purpose of studying in the United States. Once the program is over, you are required to leave the U.S. If you have an F1 visa, you must leave the U.S. no later than 60 days after the end of your program. Those with M or J visas have 30 days to leave. You may request a visa extension, but you must do so prior to the expiration of your visa. You may also be able to change the status of your visa. You may do so with the assistance of your school’s designated school official (DSO).
There are many benefits to studying in the United States. If you wish to complete your studies in the U.S., you must do so by obtaining the proper type of visa. A knowledgeable immigration attorney will answer your questions and help you through the process. To learn more, contact our legal team at Sverdloff Law Group at (312) 238-9090.
