Why It's So Important to Graduate in May
When you are in the US on an F visa studying a bachelor’s or master’s degree, the single most important thing to decide is when to graduate. Should you graduate with your friends in May? Or should you try to double up on the class load so that you can graduate in December? If you graduate in December you may save some money on tuition, but you are seriously limiting your immigration options.
Here is the best advice, and you probably will not hear this from your school: graduate in May or July.
