  • STEM-OPT status update

    I have applied for my STEM OPT extension on 28th March 2014. My OPT ends on 14th of July 2014. When I checked my status today it says [B]"On June 11, 2014, your Alien Registration Number was changed relating to your I765, APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION. Please check our website at for further updates on your case. "[/B] Can anyone tell me what this exactly means? My employers is asking me for updates ASAP if I will be getting the extension or not? Should I call them to expedite my process or should I wait as I still have 4 weeks in hand?

        USCIS website clearly states that it usually takes 90 days to process the application. I'd recommend wait until 90 days are completed. Also the status change is usually an error. I too had the same message and my card went into production a month after I got this update. What I've read is this status usually comes up when your OPT or STEM Ext is approved and within a week you should receive your card.

        Also, if you have your I797C notice of action, that makes you eligible to work for next 6 months if your STEM-Ext application is under review. Present a copy of your I797C to your employer. Also, provide him the details (can be found on the USCIS website) that allows you to continue to work for next 6 months until your application is under review. Hope this helps.

              Dude first thing chill out, no need to expedite anything, u still have 1 month left. U can give ur office the status printout and tell them thats its under process and u can still work. Note:- Ur alien reg no has changed , that means ur OPT extension has been approved & In a few days it will jump to Card documentation and u will receive it in a max of 2-3 weeks. I received my Extension card 2 weeks back and i had under been the same situation. So relax and enjoy until u receive ur new card.
