  • OPT after failed PhD defense

    Hello,

    I found a job 6 months before my PhD defense and started my post-completion OPT before my graduation. I defended my PhD last week but my committee gave me a lot of corrections and wanted me to defend it again in 3 months. I got my masters from the same university 2 years ago. My questions are:

    It is highly unlikely but what will happen to my OPT status if I fail my PhD defense?
    Will I lose all my rights to be employed and live in USA and leave the country immediately?
    Since I have my masters degree from the same institution, can I still keep my OPT and keep working in the US?

    Thank you very much for your time and help in advance.

        If you fail your PhD defense or there are still deficiencies in 3 months, will they not give you another shot? If you do fail, it will likely mean that you must stop working unless your school is willing to extend your I-20 to give you another chance at the defending the thesis. You need to talk to the ISO/DSO for clear guidance.
