You cannot change your non-immigrant status without going home if you have overstayed your I-94 departure date.
If you overstayed more than 6 months, you cannot return for 3 years.
If you overstayed more than a year, you cannot return for 10 years.
There are waivers available, but you should meet with an immigration attorney for details.
