Hi all,

My wife is here on a K3 visa. Can she enroll in college? If not, then what paperwork does she need to send it to have this ability.

Also... I live in South Carolina and she is having a very hard time getting a driver license and even an ID card. The DMV office said that they only give licenses to people who have student visas or work visas. This even goes for simple ID cards !!! We don't know what to do.

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks,

khabibiuf

My guess would be that she could attend, but not get the "resident" tuition rates.

There is nothing stopping her INS wise from attending....

You should check with the school for information on residency requirements.

The problem you are having with South Carolina and their DMV is something others are experiencing as well. I know someone has contacted their political representative and they are trying to get them to have the DMV rewrite their regulations on the K visas.

Perhaps you might want to do a search on http://www.google.com for these postings re SC DMV and you can contact this person by e-mail and together present a united front for new legislation.

PS As for schooling, it depends on the higher learning institute. Each one has a different criteria so your wife will have to work within their guidelines. Have her call and talk with the admissions office.

I got my learner's permit from SC DMV when I got my social security card. I didn't show them my EAD or visa or anything, but that's probably because I had my SSN. Also, don't know about K3, but I came in on a K1 visa and my in laws filled out the affidavit of support for me because the hubby wasn't earning enough then....

I called College of Charleston to see if I could do a masters, they said that I could but would have to pay out of state fees until I could show them my AOS stamp in my passport. The college's deadline for legal residency status is July, but the lady said she would even work with me if I got my stamp after the deadline! You should call the college you are thinking of, they usually have an office which deals with legal residency Qs.

When was this though? They only began enforcing regulations that were already on the
books after 9/11.
