Your application for a student visa is handled separately from your marriage application. If your marriage application is approved, then that will override your student visa application. If, however, it is not approved then your student application still remains in affect. Please note that in your marriage application there is a question which asks, "Have you ever filed for ANY other types of visas?", which must be answered correctly otherwise you will be subject to denial for filing a false application!

US citizen marries a non-citizen do they become a US citizen?

No, marriage to US citizen does not automatically allow a non-citizen to become a permanent resident or citizen of the US.Marriage does entitle the non-citizen to apply for US permanent residency, provided they can show they will be living in the US. For example, if a US citizen married a German citizen, and they continue to live in Germany, the german citizen cannot apply for a US permanent resident visa. If, at some time later, the couple decide to move back to the US, the German citizen can at that time apply for a permanent residency visa. Such marriage-based permanent resident visas are almost always granted once the couple shows proper residency intent (and, shows that the marriage is not a sham or fraud one).Any non-citizen holding a US permanent residency visa can apply for US citizenship via the nationalization process. The key requirements of the citizenship process are:Be a permanent resident for at least 5 years (or 3 if married to a US citizen)Reside continuously (except for short-duration excursions) in the US for that period of timeHave a clean criminal record, or obtain a specific waiver from an immigration judgeAttend proper citizenship classes
