From the Visa Office: Are you an F-1 Student on OPT?

If you are an F-1 student currently working pursuant to the initial OPT work authorization, the Visa Office would like to remind you that you must apply for the STEM OPT extension within the last 90 days of your initial OPT validity. Extension requests will NOT be accepted during the 60-day grace period after the initial OPT expires.

Please remember to contact the Visa Office early in your extension process to complete the required Form I-983. Please also keep in mind your university’s schedule to avoid delays during holidays.

For more information, contact the Visa Office.
