Some students change to other immigration statuses to stay in the U.S. after F-1/J-1 status (H-1b, O1, Permanent Resident, etc.) You may be eligible for various statuses depending on your situation.
If you are interested in changing to a new status, you should work with an immigration attorney to determine your eligibility and how to apply. Some employers already have immigration attorneys they work with and can give you further information.
ISSS recommends you continue to maintain your current F1/J1 status until the new status is approved. Once you have received the approval notice of your new status, submit one of the Change of Status from F or J
requests in the ISSS Portal
. We will then use the notice to end your current F1/J1 status as needed.
