  • STEM extension without completing Final Project Defence

    Hello,

    I am on Post completion OPT and it will expire within the next month. I have completed all requirements for my degree except for my final project defense.
    I have only 15 days of unemployment during my opt, and the job is related to my degree. Masters in Computer science.

    Is it safe to apply for STEM extension ?
    I will be applying with official transcripts and a letter from my DSO stating only defense is pending.

    Kindly reply fast.

        I dont know if the rules have changed or not but as far as i know you cannot apply for STEM ext unless ur degree is complete which means that all your course requirements are completed including project defense.

              Earlier it was like u have to have diploma to apply for opt stem ext but recently things have changed a little bit. U are good to apply for ext if the thesis defence is in pending. But make sure or plan accordingly to complete your defense on time so that u can get your diploma on time to apply for H1-B in masters quota during next fiscal year. Good luck for your thesis
