Updating STEM OPT Information

Students report material changes to ISS by:

ISS staff members receive notifications when students submit updates and process them in a timely manner.  Staff members will only contact students regarding their update if they have questions or concerns. If a student does not receive any notification from an ISS staff member, it is safe to assume that the update is being processed successfully. 

If a new I-20 is prepared as the result of any submitted updates, students will be notified by email when that new I-20 is ready.  It generally takes 5-7 business days for a new I-20 to be prepared.

Students on an OPT STEM Extension will be required to submit an update every six months during their extension, even if there are no changes to their employment. ISS will email students when it is the appropriate time to submit these updates. This email will also contain detailed instructions on how to submit the update to our office.
