I have a tourist visa in the US and was planning to return months from now, but it will be just for 2 weeks. 1 week vacation and I have seen a course in coursehorse.com for application development which runs for just 5 days. Do I need a separate student visa just for a 5-day course? Will they require it when I enroll? I have sent an email to the course site, but I didn't get any response. I hope I can get an answer from here.
A tourist visa enables you to come and visit whenever you like. At the port of entry you will get the 6 month visa usually enabling you to stay in the country for 6 months at a stretch. I checked out coursehero, it would depend on the course you are taking but courses there seem to be adhoc and open for all to sign up. Thus they may not need the visa requirement (Unsure how will they check that requirement) If they allowed you to sign up without the requirement then does not seem to me that they would need a student visa just for that. Your best bet is contacting the course folks directly rather than coursehero.
