Module 4: What do I do when my OPT is ending?

The objectives of Module 4 are to help you determine if you are eligible for a Cap-Gap or STEM extension and take the appropriate steps to maintain your legal status through the end of your OPT.  This module should be completed at least three months before your OPT end date.

First, read the information below about Cap-Gap and STEM extensions.  Then, take the quiz at the link below to see if you are eligible for either extension.  The results of your quiz will be emailed to a member of the OISP staff who will review your answers.

Next, review the resources below about the end of your OPT.  Then, engage in a discussion with your peers using the discussion board link below about how you are preparing for the end of your OPT.
