Hello Everyone,

I’m a international grad student at one of the well know university in US. I’ll be graduating this Fall 15 and i’m curious to know about the 24 months OPT STEM EXT, did it get approved? If so, when will DHS officially post. I’m trying to apply for OPT during mid of feb’15. So, I’m just curious to know whether i will get opt stem ext or not. Kindly reply.

Thanks in Advance,

It is not approved yet. We may hear more in Q1 2016. Until then you are eligible for the initial 12 months of OPT.
