Do one have to pay the international fees if you get converted from H4 Visa to F1 Visa after first year of college? Answered
Hello there, I'm asking this question for one of my friend...I know that being an H4 Visa student, you are eligible to pay the in-state tuition fees, but with H4 Visa, you can't get campus jobs nor any internships. So people said that converting to F1 after first year of college might be a better option as you can get OPT, internships, etc. BUT, the main concern is fees. If one decides to study in student visa after first year of college, do she/he has to pay international fees or continue to pay in-state tuition fees?
P.S. Let's imagine that the student's parents are H1B Visa Holder.

My understanding is that F1 visas usually require sponsorships, meaning you would be designated as an international student. I've linked some resources below about citizenship and colleges in the U.S.:
