Customer Question
I am a Canadian...

I am a Canadian on TD in US. And I am a college junior student. I won’t be able to renew my TD (expiring in the May) since I will be over 21. So I need to apply my F1 for Spring 2018 semester. Is there any way to switch from TD to F1 in US without leaving?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?

No.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No.

So sorry for the delay. My internet was having issues.

Here is your answer. Yes there is a way to change your status without leaving the US. You can submit form I-539 which is an application to change your status from one to another. You want to make sure that you submit it before your TD status expires.

Here is the application and the fee is $370 https://www.uscis.gov/i-539

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.
