Hi,

I am from ACICS accreditation lost Univ, but Graduated by April 24th, 2016 which is before ACICS accreditation lost. My Initial OPT expires by May 8th, 2017, but  My H1B got picked by lottery,( check cashed out on 28th April,2017 , yet to receive receipt). But am I eligible to get cap gap from University as this is ACICS accreditation lost. Also if I get Cap GAP, am I eligible to work as I am already working now and eligible to run PAYROLL?.

 

My current Employer is A, but H1B got Picked up from B, so if I get CAP GAP, I need to move my payroll under B or can I continue with A till September 30th?  Because from Oct 1st, I am sure my Payroll has to run by B.

You can request for cap-gap I-20. Does not have anything to do with accreditation. You can work during cap-gap window.
