Hello, I am Pavi from India and I am on B-2/ visitor visa. I came to know about one Graduate program in nearby university.
I applied for the same and now I have been accepted for this program. I am going to apply for change of status i.e. from B-2 to F-1 visa, but my family is in India.
Can you please tell me how can I apply F-2 Visa for my family.
Hi, I concur with Mr. Vega. In addition, you should consult with an international office of the university that issued an I-20 for you. They will tell you about the I-539 and F-1/2 visa related forms and documents.

You can file FORM I- 539 with USCIS to change to the F-1 status. Another option requires that you travel back to your home country and request the F-1 visa with the U. S. consulate. Your family will have to apply for the F -2 visa at the U.S. consulate in either case.
Your family will have to apply for F2 visas at a US consulate. They complete an online application called a DS 160 and schedule an interview with the consulate. They should take a copy of your I-20, F1 approval notice marriage and birth certificates
