  1. I was working on my wife's DS-260 when I had to stop and ask her to gather complete information on her 'education from secondary on + all of her employment.' The web site displayed those explicit requirements. Two days later, when I logged back on the enter the data, the web site had been changed and they asked for 'employment OR education' and for employment, they only asked for 'occupation' and 'any other occupation.' As my wife has been both a Lawyer and a Religious Worked, I filled in just two pieces of employment information and that was all I was asked for. I'm quite happy that the requirements had been simplified, but it's rather surprising to have it happen this way. Has anybody else noticed this change?
  2. My niece is 16 and finished high school one year early in Jamaica. Shes interested in coming stay with my family here in the U.S. to do what would be considered here, her senior year. She has been approved for a visitors Visa and has traveled once during last year to stay a time with family here in U.S. What steps does she need to take to apply for a student Visa? I'm confused on how exactly to go about it because school has already started here and she has just brought this up to us. She's applying to a community college in Jamaica but otherwise has no schooling left as a youth in Jamaica. She'll be 17 in December. Would she even be able to take this year to go through the application process and then (if approved) enter U.S. high school as a senior next fall?
  3. My fiancé didn't complete high school in Morocco, so he didn't obtain a baccalaurate. He dropped out of school, in Morocco, at the age of 14/15, would that affect how long it would take for him to get his GED? Would he just have to get his GED to go onto college/votech/university, or are there paperwork we need to even enroll for any schooling? At least getting his GED, but what are the steps that I need to look more into after AOS and getting his SS#? We have been talking about career choice, but its hard to decide because he's not certain what field of work he wants to go in. Of course, we would like to have a decent and comfortable life together, so I'm encouraging him to continue his education. Could we apply for financial aid? I don't want to be swamped in debt, but I know education is extremely important. I make decent money for myself as a hairstylist, but after marriage I know that finances are going to completely different. I'm 21 and he's 24, so we don't have a lot of experience when it comes to things like this. Sorry for all the questions, but I'm so at loss right now in what to do.. Thank you so much in advance!
  4. I am a K1 applicant. Already in USA and just got married. How long before can I start going to school or uni ? I wanted to study something before EAD arrived because that’s going to take 3 months or longer. I’m really getting bored having nothing to do. I want to apply for school (nutrition) and based in Louisville. I’m talking about myself. Not my kids (don’t have any)
  5. Hello, I'm currently finish up my bachelors overseas and am on a 2 year reentry permit. However my permit expires in Nov 18 but my education will end in March 19, basically 4 months after my permit expires. After getting my degree, I intend to permanently reallocate to the USA. Does any1 have any advice on how should i go about handling this? Would it be ok if i flew in Nov18 and stayed for a week before flying back? Thanks
  6. Hi there, So my Green Card was just approved and I'm preparing to start applying for work. I understand pretty much any job will want to know my education and I'm not sure where my education stands to an American standard. See I went to Canada's Sheridan College (considered an "art school" by many) for a very extensive "art" program (it was theatre production - set design, building, props, management etc). My program was called an "Advanced Diploma" because it was a 3 year college program. In the US, I understand that anything called a diploma is referring to high school. And Canada doesn't have Associates Degrees. I also feel that calling what I have an associates degree is selling myself short, because it was a 3 year program, not 2. This also means it also wasn't a bachelor's degree. How do I determine what to call my qualification? Is there a way for me to find out? Thanks
