    Confusion on whether I will get opt and opt extension

    I am currently a masters student in stem course and will graduate in Spring 2015. Due to some academic reason I have not applied for my opt and have not done CPT either because I am not eligible for either of them because I got suspended in fall 2014 and now I am on my new visa with new sevis and with only one semester remaining in my masters I am facing this problem. Now I have applied for a stem course at Sullivan University. My question is now
    1) Will i be eligible for OPT and OPT extension after I complete my secodn masters at sullivan in stem course keeping in mind that I have not applied for opt or cpt in my first masters.
    Thanks for the help.

    Sullivan is not a better option to join. I don't have answer for your question but what i know is that u cannot apply H1 under masters quota with degree from sullivan university bcz it is for profit university.

    The new science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) OPT extension is more selective and prolongs existing post-completion OPT employment authorizations for some F-1 students.

    Designated school officials must recommend eligible students for both post-completion OPT and the STEM OPT extension in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System. However, students must fulfill different eligibility requirements to participate in each opportunity.

    Generally OPT is part of masters curriculum and you can get an OPT work authorization after you complete your second masters at Sullivan University
