International PhD student - advice needed


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am admitted to the PhD program starting August 2015. I have very recently filed for a change of status from H1b to F1 and seeing the current processing times, my COS could be delayed . in such a situation, would I able to join my PhD program? Would I be paid my stipend?

Any advice is appreciated .

Thank you so much .

I think those questions are better addressed to your School's International Student's Office. They will be able to provide more specific questions and offer advise on what to do (that's their job and your case may be not that unheard of for people working there.


I have heard of people having issues with extra delayed visa processing because of some sort of "administrative processing" and they got their passports with the visa stamped several months later (cases with homonyms to blacklisted people or stuff like that, that require extra background check to make sure it is a different person).
