STEM OPT RFE - Degree not STEM eligible

Recommended Posts

Similar to another recent poster in this forum, I received a RFE from USCIS yesterday requesting additional evidence showing that my degree is a STEM eligible one. I included my transcript and diploma in the STEM OPT application evidence, so I think the issue is that those documents state "Bachelor of Arts in Economics" instead of "Bachelor of Arts in Econometrics / Quantitative Economics" which is the listed on my I-20, but not on my transcript.
In past cases, have you found that a letter from the Dean and the Economics Department Chair explaining that the degree is STEM-eligible is enough to get the application approved? I know in this article, Murthy mentions that there have been other applicants in a similar situation as myself:
In the event that the application gets denied, have you found that Motions to Reopen have always been successful? For reference, I graduated from UChicago and was told since I enrolled that the Bachelor of Economics degree is STEM eligible.
Thank you very much!
