  • Can I get OPT if I coplete masters in 1 academic yr?

    Hi,
    I joined masters in Summer 2013 and I am anticipating to complete by spring 2014 (i.e. one academic year). My question is, will I get OPT after my graduation? Should I extend my masters to one more semester. Will there be any problem in future for H1 or green card.
    Please help me out. Thanks in advance

                Yes you will get for sure...You can start applying for OPT 90 days before graduation and the last date is 60 days after graduation. There would be no problem

                          For STEM extension,
                          1) Your program must fall under STEM categories
                          2) Your employer must come under e-verify
