OPT Denied (I-20 older than 30 days)

Recommended Posts

Posting behalf of my Friend..

One of My friend graduated in MSEE in Dec 2016.He applied for OPT but yesterday he got  notification from USCIS that his application of I-765 was denied because his OPT was more than 30 days old by the time application reached to USCIS.

I have attached the Notice herewith to get more details.

DSO said they are unable to provide any new I20 as SEVIS is closed.and he don't have any option rather than going back to INDIA as he his out of status right away.

SO my question is "is there any way he can appeal the decision with any possible additional documentation to get his OPT? 

Will any appeal make any difference in the decision by taken by USCIS?

Any other option to stay in USA ?
