  • Got my opt, lost one subject

    hi guys, just take a little time to analyse my situation here and help me advising...

    I just got My OPT but failed in a Subject,so i wont be able to work(for univ complex subject issues). so for next 3 months i will be jobless, according to USCIS more than 3 months out of employment leads to rejection of OPT extension. so, now can i get an exception of not working for 3 months bcaz of studying or its a compulsory rule to have a payroll run even if u attend university. if so, part time or full time?

    can i get an exception for 3 months from USCIS bcaz i attend the university and not work. or it only works like i have to have a payroll for sure even if i am in the university.I plan on attaching a document explaining " I did not work bcaz i was studying" do u think its a valid argument here.

    Your thoughts are appreciated.

                For this scenario, you can take an online course, finish by the end of semester and parallelly you can work on your opt.
