OPT Stem extension requested 6 weeks ago, laid off from the company


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was working for a client and even applied for 24 month stem extension 40 days ago. My previous OPT has been expired and I have got 6 months authorisation since I filed my OPT extension on time. I am still waiting on a decision from USCIS. Unfortunatey, I have been laid off from the company with a same day notice. Do I  need to update my university about that or should I wait until a decision is made on my previous application which might be  approximately 40 more days from now.

Also, I have worked for whole one year of my first year of OPT. will I be out of status since  I am out of a job and waiting for my extension approval ?
