Hi everyone,

I apologize in advance if im in the wrong forum,I wasnt sure if I had to post in the student visa forum or AOS exactly...

Anyways, Im in abit of a rut..

I just recently moved to the USA from Canada on a K-1 visa (I moved here 8 months ago in april). Me and my husband got married may 10/2012 and I received my Work permit card this past August. Now, I havent got any notice or anything to have my AOS interview/green card yet, im sure I will within the next few months or so.

Ide like to start taking some classes at university in the USA here this upcoming march, and im unsure how to go about it. Do I have to wait until I receive my green card, or wait until my status is adjusted? im very confused. Im married and all I have is a temporary work permit card... Someone told me Its fine for me to start taking classes because me and my husband are married but then I heard I have to wait until my status is changed and I dont know how long that will take....

Can someone please give me some advice on what to do here?

You should get your green card long before March. I would think in the next month.

Mostly yes, but this is the thing that's up to the school and the college system. How about checking with the school's admission office?

At most colleges, you will be charged out of state tuition fee if you have less than one year residency. Try to get the State ID or DL at soon as possible, that's the proof that you establish your state residency.
