F-1 or M-1 classification is designed for students provided they meet the following criteria:
The F-1 Visa (Academic Student) allows you to enter the U.S. as a full-time student at an accredited academic institution or in a language training program. The M-1 visa (Vocational Student) category includes students in vocational or other nonacademic programs, other than language training. F-1 and M-1 visas are issued for the duration of study. F-1 students may not work off-campus during the first academic year, but may accept on-campus employment. M-1 students may engage in practical training only after they have completed their studies.
F-1 and M-1 may be accompanied by spouses and unmarried children under 21 under F-2 and M-2 classifications, respectively.
