CPT End date


Recommended Posts


My CPT approval end date was Feb 04. I was waiting for my OPT approval and as I did not receive it in time, I applied for another program that offers me CPT from day 1. The college told me that I could start working from Feb 05 as they would hand me a new I-20 immediately and hence I went to work on Feb 05. Meanwhile, on Feb 06, my OPT application status changed to 'Card mailed' and hence I chose to take 2 weeks leave without pay and wait for the EAD card to resume working and discontinue the new program. I am planning to go back to work after I receive my EAD card. 

My question is : As my CPT ended on Feb 04 and I had worked on Feb 05 without a valid CPT or OPT, will this be an issue? I got paid for working on Feb 05. What are my options to resolve this issue? Appreciate your help.
