Hello, my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
You needed to meet the requirements of the degree for your H1B. USCIS was satisfied with your credentials at the time you applied for the COS.
Therefore, if you had the minimum requirements at the time the H1B was approved it will not impact your H1B if you do not continue your education.
Thank you Judith for this answer. Would there be a reference to the fact that I did not complete my degree when I later on apply for a green card? In other word, could I be subject to green card denial for not completing the education requirement under my F1 status?
Do you have at least the equivalent of a US bachelor degree to meet the requirement of the H1B or if you were under the master cap do you have the equivalent of that?
I am holding a Bachelor and Master from a US university
Then there is no problem, you don't have to complete your program of study under the F1.
