I came to US on a J-1 visa. I did the change of status to an F-1. Last semester due to financial problems I couldn't finish the semester. My International Advisor at my school said she would have to cancel my papers. However, I solved my money problems and would like to reapply for a new semester. My I-20 is valid until Jun 2014. Will I be able to apply even though I had to stay one semester out? What are my options? Thank you
You risk losing your F-1 status if you do not continue your studies as intended. Do discuss that with your school international students advisor as missing a semester may render you out of status. For other legal immigration options I suggest a reputable immigration attorney to review all your alternatives.
