What is the H4 Visa? H4 Visa or H4 dependent visa is the US visa category given to the spouse and children (under 21 years of age) of all H visa holders such as H1B Visa, H1B1 Visa, H2A, H2B and H3. The H4 visa is treated as dependent visa, meaning its validity and status are tied to the primary H visa holder.
Year after year, we work with high school students who have H4 visa status seeking admissions to Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs. All of these students that we work with are top students. However, because of their visa status, they are restricted (requirement: U.S. citizen or permanent resident) from applying to certain BS/MD programs, but not Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities. One top BS/MD program that accepts H4 visa students is Brown PLME.
If your child has a dependent H4 visa they can go to college without a change in their visa status. There are a few exceptions to the case, but if you are worried about applying for the student visa (F1) to study, don’t worry, it is possible to enroll in a college or school on a dependent visa.
Dr. Lowe and his team work with international students and students with H4 visas and from time to time will consult with immigration attorneys regarding their client’s immigration status and its relationship to their admissions process. As a result, Dr. Lowe has been quite successful in placing H4 and international students in Ivy League, highly selective colleges and universities and BS/MD programs.
