  • go to school on H1B

    Hi,
    I have read that an H1b holder can attent school full-time while he/she is working. Can anyone verify that?

    from the uscis.gov:
    "Must an H-1B alien be working at all times?
    As long as the employer/employee relationship exists, an H-1B alien is still in status. An H-1B alien may work in full or part-time employment and remain in status. An H-1B alien may also be on vacation, sick/maternity/paternity leave, on strike, or otherwise inactive without affecting his or her status."

    Seems like I could go to school for my masters while on my H1B and work part-time or not work at all as long as my company is ok with that?

    What do you think?

    Thanks,
    N

      You can certainly take classes and go to school while holding H-1b.

      There are many H-1b holders pursue advanced degrees sponsored by their employers.

      However, you would be treated as a non resident if that matters.
