  • OPT and EAD

    Hi Guys I have a question regarding to my EAD for my OPT status can someone suggest what should i do?

    I have applied for my pre-opt full time(eligibility to work for 40hrs a week) and its valid from January to May. I graduate in the month of June so according to the uscis i can only work for 20 hrs part time in the months of May and June. I had applied for my EAD with pre opt full time status on November and got a confirmation today that my card is in production. So my question can the same card be used for part time status of opt as well or should I apply for new card? In the month of July my post completion opt starts and the same question should i change my ead? Need help please reply..

            Exactly who told you can 20hrs in May and June. Once your pre opt is expired and your post opt is still in processing you cannot work in between. Again you need apply for post opt to get post opt ead for the remaining amount of time you have. The amount of time you requested in full time pre opt will be deducted from post opt. Please contact your school DSO for further details

              There is a provision which will allow for pre opt for part time.. my pre opt is divided into two parts one full time and other 2 months part time..
