OPT Extension denied, what are my chances??


Recommended Posts



My stem extension (OPT Extension) was rejected on 08/14/2015 as I applied 1 day late i.e. My OPT expired on 06/17/2015 and my application was received by USCIS on 06/18/2015.


By staying with in the country, can I re-enroll as a student into any program? As I already have a Master’s degree and I have an F1 visa till March 2018. Or Can I apply my H4 visa while I am in U.S? 


What are my chances of staying without getting into an illegal stay?

Also, since my OPT Extension is rejected, what is the grace period to stay legally in U.S while I fix my visa status?
