The new STEM OPT extension rules allow for qualified students to procure 24-month STEM OPT extensions instead of 17 months under the old rules. Students currently on a 17-month STEM OPT extension have until August 8, 2016, to apply for a one-time 7-month STEM OPT extension. Interested students should consult with their DSO.
