Need to move to US on K1 before it expires but still registered as a student?

Hi everyone,

 

I'm in a weird situation and I need some advice from the immigration side. I have my K1 and it expires in January, but my masters thesis defence can't be scheduled until after I move, but it can scheduled for when I can come back either on AP or with a green card. Will it be an issue if I'm still registered as a student in Canada while moving to the US on a K1?

Nope not from the  perspective of the USA 


YMMV

So they for sure won't care because I'm a) not receiving money so it's not employment and b) not attending a US university? I'm trying to find confirmation of this online but can't seem to find it short of talking to an immigration lawyer.

They don't care and there isn't a reason they should care. You are over thinking this

Yes, I'm probably overthinking this but I just want to be 100% sure. Thank you for your input!

A k1 can go to school in the USA,  why would you think otherwise?

Not sure what you mean by "registered as a student," but be aware that you won't be able to return to Canada without the EAD, which could take up to 6 months.

Yes of course! My school knows the situation and basically I'd just have to pay another semester of tuition to still be a student there, and schedule the defence once the AP is issued. I just wanted to make sure that the US wouldn't have an issue with this. But according to everyone so far, sounds like they don't care
