OPT Extension denied due to STEM Major


Recommended Posts


Whoever is reading this please post your suggestions, I have just 28 days more.

I have been issued I20 naming major as "Management Information Systems" from the beginning of my Masters. Similarly my International counselor issued OPT extension I20 as is. Now I received a notice of "Denial" because my Major is not listed in STEM programs. All my Friends have "Information Systems" in their I20s and have no problem. 
1) What can I do now? Whose mistake is this ? (Dont want to blame but just want to know)
2) Can this be corrected ? Like my DSO changes my program on I20 and I open MTR and file again?
3) I am doing a full time job, will this be effected ?

Thanks! Please it is urgent.
