But why was it terminated?
It was terminated due to poor academic performances; I also have to tell you Last year I had a reinstatement from my college. So the college informed me three days ago that my I-20 has been terminated and I should look for a new school or return back to my home country. My question is if a go back to my country can I apply for a new visa with a new I-20. And did I break any law that I can't come to United States with five years please help.
You can apply for reinstatment, but I don't think you will be able to apply for a new I-20 from a new school from inside the U.S.
However, you can leave the U.S. quickly and then apply for a new I-20 and student visa from outside without the penalty of 3 years (not 5), or 10 years. Just make sure you leave the U.S. soon. At 180 days after termination, you activate the 3 year bar. At 1 year after termination, if you have not leave, you activate the 10 year bar.
Also, don't leave at 179 days thinking that it would be ok to leave as long as it is less than 180 days. You still have to prove to a consular officer that you will not overstay or stay illegally, etc. So the quicker you leave, the better it looks.
So I have been terminated twice so will I have a difficulties applying a new visa from my country.
That is an opinion, of course. My experience may be different from her's. The botXXXXX XXXXXne is this:
1) Get reinstated for the visa. If you cannot, then you can apply for asylum or marry a U.S. Citizen.
2) Leave before you reach 180 days of being illegal. As I said before, you reach 180 days, you activate the 3 year bar. You reach 1 year of being illegal and you activate the 10 year bar. This means that you cannot come back in for 3 or 10 years and no amount of explaining will help you. BUT, if you leave NOW, you can apply to come back in with a new F1 student visa or some other visa IF you can convince them that you will not overstay again. There is no guarantee that you will convince them, but the faster you leave, the better chance you have. If you activate the 3 or 10 year bar, even if they wanted to approve you, they cannot. So if you wait too long, they no longer have an option to approve you. If you leave now before 180 days, they have the option to approve or deny you depending on how convincing you are. So leave now and you have a possibility. Wait too long and you have no possibility.
I'm sorry, but those pretty much your choices.
Ok my first quarter was good enough. Then In the second quarter I registered for online classes and was really confused with the classes it was hard for me to understand the classes so I asked my friend what should I do (he was an local student) and advised me to droop the classes and take the classes in the next quarter so I did without know the what could happen. Then they terminated my I-20 and I applied for the reinstatement. And got it after 6 months or so. As I did 2 more quarter my lack of attendance and poor academic performances they dismissed me from the college telling me to look for a new college or go back to my home country without warning me what could happen. If they let me know earlier I could transfer to another college before hand without a hassle. Now the winter quarter is also closed so my choices for getting into is also harder they let me know about my status last Tuesday 29 dec 2009 when all the college and office are closed now please help me.
There are some colleges that had mid-semester courses that you could also apply for, just a thought, but can you tell me why you had a problem with attendance and poor academic performances?
Also, would it be possible to get letters from some professors that state that you do have potential, etc. etc.?
I think this is your best bet. Speak to your advisors tomorrow, speak to some professors and explain the situation and try to get letters of recommendation, and then perhaps get statements from your family members that you have had problems and explaining the problems, etc. Then you write a long letter based upon all of that. Of course there is no guarantee, but I think it is a good course of action to take.
But also, start looking into other schools that may have mid-term classes that you could take. You would use the same letters for your reinstatement, but this is just in case your current school doesn't want to take you back.
So due to my first termination is there any chances that they will question me should I take recommendation letters from my old school teachers and yes the current school gave me the same I-20 for reinstatement through border they also issued a letter for my entry. That I am a full time student at their college and paid my tution fees in full amount. So what are my chances?
