If extension expires, is it ok to stay in the US awaiting for USCIS decision to grant an F1 visa? 3 Answers as of March 02, 2011If my extension as tourist in US expires in May and I submit school's requirement for me to study by fall, do I still need to leave the country and just go back by fall? Or is it ok to stay here until the decision from the USCIS comes?

In order for you to remain while the case is pending, you must have some underlying status. So if your B-2 expires before the date you request for your F-1, then you are not allowed to remain here and really need to leave by the date on your I-94 card.
