I am in a similar situation to the many previous questions on this topic, except that I am studying remotely for a college based in the US, and not working. The school is an accredited, degree-granting school and I am studying for credit towards a degree. I am planning to visit my school for 1-2 months to hang out with classmates, meet the teachers, etc., while still studying "remotely" for my classes. My degree does not require me to be physically on campus at any point, this is just for my own networking benefit. My school has confirmed they will not sponsor F1 visas. Can I enter the US on a B2 visa? The B1 visa for working digital nomads doesn't apply to me because I am not "meeting business associates".
Before anyone asks, yes, this is a legitimate school and not a diploma mill. I wish to remain anonymous so I will not reveal what school it is but it is a famous school. I have an official .edu email, id card, etc. from the school so it is not a scam.
