  • What is meant by ,One Full Academic Year in OPT Eligibility process?

    I came to US in the Spring 2014(January). I have done more subjects during the summer classes and I am left with only 2 subjects for the Fall semester. So, I am going to complete my graduation by end of Fall 2014. I have doubt regarding OPT.In the OPT eligibility, it is mentioned as minimum of 1 academic year for applying for the OPT. I am not sure regarding, my course completion considered as one academic year(Spring 2014 to End of Fall 2014). Can any advice me on this please..?

            There is no definition in law about academic yr .. Till now university is the one who decide that definition .. Most universities treat 2 semesters as academic yr ..

                It is one academic year. But why don't you apply for CPT instead of Opt?

                You can work for almost an year on CPT

                    Hi right now I am in CPT ( expiration Aug 14th 2014) and working for company as full time. I have applied for OPT in June and Now I have expedited my OPT request. I received a email from USCIS stating "Your case is now under expedited review. You should receive a decision or notice of further action on your Form I-765 within 45 days from the date of this letter." Its been 60 Days and they need 45 more days to process my OPT application. How can I get rid of this hurdle. Is there any one who is in this same situation. Because I need to have my OPT by AUG 15th or else I may loose my JOB.
