Am I eligible for cap gap extension?


Recommended Posts

My OPT ends at the end of June 2016 and my employer will be filing an H1B application for me in the next lottery (FY 2016).


This is my first H1B application, I am a non-STEM major with a Bachelor's from an accredited US institution.


Would I be eligible for a cap gap extension based on the above? I googled for this information but was a little confused on whether students whose OPTs end after June 1 were eligible.


If my application isn't picked in the lottery, would the cap gap OPT extension be revoked or would I have until Sep 30 to get my things in order?
