  • For applying OPT extension SEVIS database should match Transcript which don't now- Ho

    Hello guys who ever it is you guys do a very good job. I have a problem with my OPT extension can you tell me the best solution to this. On my semester update form I have updated I m gonna graduate by Aug 2012. And applied for OPT and start date is from sept 10 th. But have few corrections in my thesis so couldn't make it in Aug 2012. I have updated this in my International students office. They told they have already updated in the SEVIS database that I have already graduated in Aug 2012. But I graduated in Dec 2012. For applying OPT extension the SEVIS database should match the Transcript which don't now. How can this be solved. Can your team bring me some solution so that I would get my status and OPT extension or else I have leave this country by September. Thanks in advance...

    That's not gonna be a problem for Stem extension... If you are not graduated while applying for Stem that might deny the process

      Don't apply OPT now. its better to apply after your thesis and completion of your graduation...
