OPT Extension Denied, I 765 was filed after 30 days of SEVIS record


Recommended Posts

I had applied for my OPT extension on Jun 29, 2015. Today (Sept 20, 2015) I received a denial notice from USCIS by mail stating that - "Form 1 765 was filed after 30 days of the data DSO entered the recommendation for OPT into his/ her SEVIS record." 


This was something that no one from my college immigration team/DSO informed me about while I got all my documents reviewed from school a day before my filing.


My current EAD expired on Sept 17, 2015. Please suggest what options do I have to:

1 - Continue my stay in US

2 - Continue working for my current employer in US
