My I-20 is expiring in a month but I didn't finish my degree, University can't extend I-20. What type of Visa I could apply to maintain legal status and how much would that cost including filing fees and attorney fees?

    Answered . You may have several options, but would need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to find the right fit for your circumstances and needs. If you intend to make the visa change without having to leave the USA first you must act fast so you can see if you can file while in status, assuming that is a possibility.
