    As per USCIS- An F1 student may be authorized 12 months of OPT for study at one education level. Looks like in your case since you have not applied for OPT after first Masters, so you should still have 12 months remaining (more for STEM). OPT eligibility is controlled by SEVIS. SEVIS is controlled by the DSO at your school. Check with your DSO as well.

            desi opt:- sevis is controlled by uscis .. DSO only can update data ..and opt eligibility is determined by uscis ( a federal authority which formed under INA and fallow the rules of INA )
