Does anyone know if schools will help you get a visa for part time program? I'm planning to quit my job later on because I'm working in Asia right now. I'm not a US Citizen so does anyone know how to get a visa for part-time study?

you cannot get student(f1) visa for part time. you need to come on work visa or any other kind of visa which allows you to legally stay here and then enroll into part time and do you part time program.

But I'm Canadian, would that make an exemption? I heard that Canadian can study part-time with B-2 visitor status, is that true?

yes, if you are canadian you have no problems, people do part time with B2 status and move in and out of the country in between to maintain status.

Can you please tell me more about it? Is this legal or a "loop-hole"? Do they tell custom that they are studying part-time whenever they enter the border? I'm afraid that I would not be able to enter the country after flying back and forth for a few times and got caught by custom!!
