OPT for my second Masters First one was approved but not used


Recommended Posts


I completed my first masters in 2010 and applied for OPT and got it approved. However I had to return to my home country due to personal reason and could not use my OPT even for a single day.


I am now back to US again on F-1 visa for my PhD.


I am planning to switch my line and therefore thinking of taking transfer to MS in Information technology and managment at UT Dallas.


My question is if I take a transfer will I be able to get an OPT on completion of the master course.


I heard that since it is going to be my second masters I wont be able to get OPT doesnt matter if I used the first OPT or not.


Some people are suggesting that I can claim my unused OPT during my first Masters.


Any help ?
