Thread: OPT Application, CPT Details

    OPT Application, CPT Details

    I have an I-20 form mentioning CPT Authorization from 5-Mar-2019 to 5-May-2019. I used the authorization only until 29-Mar-2019 and not after that. I requested my DSO and my SEVIS was updated on April 2nd, 2019 to reflect 29-Mar-2019 as CPT end date. I do have an email from DSO confirming the end date and SEVIS update, however, I don't have an I-20 reflecting this and DSO is not able to generable one.

    The problem/confusion:
    I am applying for OPT and attaching all my i-20s. If I go by the period of CPT dates mentioned on the I-20 form, i.e. 5-Mar-2019 to 5-May-2019, my total CPT time goes beyond 12 months. However, that's not true and doesn't reflect on I-20 I have. Is it okay if I provide the details in a letter of explanation and attach the copy of the email from DSO confirming SEVIS update and actual CPT end date? Kindly help me.
