Change to F-1 Status
The Office of International Students and Programs (OISP) assists admitted applicants and current students with applications for change to F-1 immigration status. Change of status applications are submitted to and adjudicated by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The process can take several months, and students are welcome to consult an immigration attorney for additional guidance on the application process.
