I’m studying at Cleveland State University. I have student F1 visa and it is valid up to 5 years from now. Once I graduate from my university in May 2022. Do I have to change my visa status? If I want to join you after my graduation?
Answer: Yes. You will need to process an M1 visa. Hopefully, by that time we will be approved to issue an F1 visa to all our students so you won’t need to process another visa.
Or when is the best time for me to join your academy?
