How do I transfer from the F1 visa to H1b Without OPT?
I'm Currently on a F1 visa and I'm confused with some employment issues. My school does'nt provide any sort of OPT or CPT or for that matter Employment Authorization. If I get an Sponsor to Hire me, even without the OPT, Is there anyway for me to get a transfer from the F1 to the H1B? I can maintain my status, for as long as I am studying. I also have an Master's degree in Oral Rehabilitation from the best University in Brazil. I actually don't know if my school doesn't qualify or the FSA/DSO won't file, all they say is "no work at all", I don't know if that kind of denial is even legal, Because I might need to work get extra money to keep myself studying.
