H4 to F1 COS in process,Graduating in May 15 ,OPT eligibility?

Recommended Posts


I applied for COS from H4 to F1 in Oct 2015.

I suppose to graduate in May 2015.Looking at the current wait times of COS application look like there is very little chance i can get it by May 2015.

So basically I have two questions?


1.If i go to India this December for stamping then am I eligible for OPT? (is there a real rule that you have to full time student for one year to get OPT? :- I am full time student on H4.


2.What happens if I don't go to India for stamping and  my COS approved after my graduation i.e after May 2015? can i still apply for OPT

if you get your COS approval even 1 day before your graduation, you will be eligible for OPT. Clause is that you should be a full time student for one year. I got my OPT the same way.
