Hello, this is Jennifer and thank you for requesting me.

It is best if she begins this process once she is inside the US. She cannot have the intentions to come to the US as a tourist and to change to student. That can only happen once she is in the US. Remember that she can be questioned about why she is coming and her bags, purse, pockets, electronics, are all subject to search if they are suspicious of her intentions in order to find evidence that she has other intentions. Keep that in mind.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!

If she applies when she is India, immigration officer will not have doubt saying she got visitor visa granted and student visa applied. And later can e rejected?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If she applies from India befre starting to USA on visitor visa, when should be the right time to start. Once the visa in progress or got approved in student visa?
Expert:  Jen Marie, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, they can reject it since she just got a visitor's visa.

I hope that helps.
