Immigration Issues/L2 Visa

Question
Can a person who holds a L2 visa change it to a F1 visa if they are currently in school full-time?

If so, do they need to go through the school's administrative office?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer
Yes they can and yes they need to get an I-20 from the school before filing change of status. L-2 is a better visa and you can go to school while in L-2 status. You can work under L-2 with permission which you can not do under F-1 for at least a year.
