Great News for F-1 Students

F-1 students in the sciences, engineering, mathematics and technology majors are finally being recognized for the tremendous future contributions you make to the U.S. economy and worldwide leadership. In long awaited acknowledgment of this truth, the Citizenship and Immigration Services will now allow students in these majors to get up to two years of practical training, instead of one year. In addition, when applying for H-1 status and a gap between the end of F-1 status (more than 60 days after graduation or end of practical training to the beginning of H-1 status on October 1) and H-1, the Immigration Service will permit the student to remain in the U.S. and obtain H-1 status without having ot leave or change status.

Finally some good news from the government!
