Default Study on H4 visa

My wife is planning to start MS on H4 visa next month. Her Visa is valid till Oct 2009, my H1 and H4 are renewed till OCt 2012 (no visa stamp yet.)

Before she starts going to school on H4 visa, do we need to inform USCIS or take any permission from them ?

My take and I am far from a lawyer.. so this is not legal advice...

You can study on H4
You cannot accept a scholarship
You cannot take an in-campus job
You cannot do an internship, apply for CPT or OPT's
If the above are all true.. there is no need to inform USCIS

I know we cannot Assistantship on H4, but do you know for sure we cannot accept scholarship also ?

There are two types of "scholarships": (i) taxable, and (ii) non-taxable. If the scholarship is non-taxable, which implies that it requires no work to "earn" it and it is not used for room-and-board and other living expenses, then you may be able to have that even while on H4.

one can take scholarship on H4. Can not accept any kind of employment.
No need to inform USCIS.

if you get fellowship, you dont have to work. TA/RA has to work, which needs authorization. Just for taking classes should be ok...disclaimer applies
