    Greetings,

    I urgently need clarification in the situation which I am facing. I am a student on a F1 visa, this year my H1B was approved bu I decided to study further so I enrolled in the master's program. My H1B is approved and left the company on agreed terms but due to oversight my H1B was not canceled. Now my international advisor informed me that SEVIS has removed my name from the system due to the change in status to H1b. I have informed my company and they have sent fax to USCIS to cancel my H1b.

    I am applying for the COS from H1B to F1 on monday, while awaiting for COS can I go to school or could I be in the US awaiting for the COS result in other words will me exiting the country affect the COS change since I will also have trouble entering the US as Ihave a student visa.

    Appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Shyam

    So are you saying that you were actually granted the F-1 but didn't terminate the H1-B?
