This year my daughter changed her visa from H4 to F1 while doing undergrad in US. Visa stamped on her passport is for H4 and expired in 2013.
Grad application form asking for "Visa Number" and "Visa Type". What would be her answer for following questions -
1) Do you have US Visa (Yes/No).
If yes -
2.1 Visa Number - (Fill In).
2.2 What type of visa - Relevant choices (.../F1/.../H4/.../Other).
If she changed from H4 to F1, then her visa type is an F1 student visa.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
I would consider her current "status" given by USCIS as the "visa" and answer all questions accordingly.

Use the F-1 I-94 information ... no, she doesn't have an F visa in her passport
