Is it safe to assume he is in the US on a student visa? And you're asking if he can adjust status from this visa?

(Some background information always helps.)

The only way that I've heard of people on student visas adjusting is if they marry an American citizen.

If you try to adjust his status from a student visa, it's like saying that you couldn't get him here permanently another way so he came on a temporary basis to study (but with intent to stay and adjust). That's what it would look like to USCIS.
