Thread: Opt-extension dead line

    Opt-extension dead line

    Hi...
    My scenario is 1st OPT valid & expiry should be 12/16/2016 & 12/15/2017 but unfortunately it is printed 12/06/2016 & 12/15/2017 which I haven't noticed initially...
    Now when I requested my OPT STEM extension then my DSO said I need to replace my OPT card with new one for applying STEM extension on my SEVIS and mistake was on USCIS side so that they will do it for free... In my case there is only 2 months of time in between where I need to get my corrected OPT card and then I need to apply for STEM extension !!

    How safe am I in this situation ??

    You need to apply for stem extension before it expires, you could apply for it with ur corrected I20.

    DSO could not able to request it due to error on my current OPT EAD card , so USCIS need to replace my old error card with newly corrected one, only then DSO can request STEM extension on my SEVIS....

    Can you apply extension without correction? Make sure that if and only if you cannot apply for extension with correction, than only go for it.. coz 10 days may ruin 2 years.

    Personally, I think it will screw up, coz generally it takes almost 90 days (minimum) to get anything done with USCIS
