Question
Hi,

I am in USA from last 2 years now. And I am almost done with my Associates Degree in Radiology Technology. I would like to know that if I can transfer by F1 visa to any working visa after associates degree.I have financial problem.


Answer
Hi Smit,

The standard working visa (H-1B) requires a bachelor's degree. You can work on-campus for 20 hours per week, and the International Student Advisor can also advise about showing unforeseen economic necessity which may result in being allowed to work off-campus as well. However, you must continue to be a full-time student in order to maintain F-1 status.
