记得选择c(3)(C), OPT extension


在填写OPT EXT申请时,所有需要准备的相关材料:

  • Two passport-style photographs (name, date of birth, I-94 card number and SEVIS number written on the back). Photos must be taken within the last 30 days and cannot have previously been used for a passport, visa, or other US government-related application.

  • If submitting your application by mail, you must get a check or money order for $410 made payable to the US Department of Homeland Security. If paying by check, be sure that your name and address are pre-printed on it. If you have to hand write in either your name or address on the check then we recommend getting a money order instead. Write SEVIS ID on check/money order. Do NOT send your money order separate from the application the money order is for. Your money order should be included with your other application materials. If submitting your application online, you will be able to pay the fee online by following the USCIS prompts.

  • A completed Form G-1145.

  • Do NOT submit Form I-983 in your application to USCIS (this is only a document OGS is required by USCIS to keep on file).

  • A completed Form I-765 (the link takes you to the main page for both accessing the form and the government's instructions on how to complete the Form I-765); Be sure to review our I-765 explained so that you fill out the form correctly. It’s best to type your information into the form, print it, then sign it. If you decide to file the I-765 online, review our information on filing the online I-765.

  • A photocopy of the new I-20 with the OGS STEM OPT recommendation on it.

  • A photocopy of your F-1 visa (except for citizens of Canada and Bermuda)

  • A photocopy of your passport identification page, clearly indicating your passport name, nationality, date of birth, and the passport expiration date

  • Your printed I-94 record, clearly indicating that you are in F-1 status

  • Photocopies of any previously-issued Employment Authorization Document (EAD), if applicable.

  • Official transcripts for the degree upon which your STEM OPT extension will be based.

  • If your STEM OPT extension application is based on a previous STEM degree, include a transcript from your previous school. If you do not have an I-20 showing the CIP code from that school, you must also include documentation from that school indicating the CIP code for that program.

网申将所有材料提交成功之后,在一周之内就会收到USCIS发出的official receipt,会以邮件的形式发送至你的邮箱


时间线

3/21 网申,当天刷卡,Case Was Received and A Receipt Notice Was Emailed

3/22 网申日期从3/21变成3/22,网上有电子receipt

3/27 收到纸质receipt

3/30 Card Is Being Produced!

4/1 Card Was Picked Up By The United States Postal Service

能够网申的同学们今年尽量网申就好,整个流程会快很多。许多寄纸质材料的同学们等带official receipt的时间特别长,而且还会存在一些材料寄丢了的情况。


祝每一位OPTEXT的同学今年申请顺利~早日拿到EAD卡!
