I withdrew from the previous school that I attended for a semester in 2019. My F-1 (5 years), I-20 (2 years), and SEVIS will be terminated soon.
At the same time, can my F-1 be transferred to another school in the U.S.; or will I have to ask for a new F-1 for the new school? It will be Fall 2020.
In the meanwhile, I would like to apply for an ESTA in order to travel to the U.S. temporarily. (not as a student)
Is this OK?
My citizenship and passport is South Korean.
I am in Canada; and I searched about VWP. It was confusing because it says, if someone departs from Canada to the U.S., there needs no visa. But I guess it is only for Canadian citizens.
