DHS Extension Of Student Visa Program Ruled Deficient

Last month a D.C. federal judge found deficient a 2008 DHS rule which allows F-1 visa students pursing STEM degrees to receive an additional 17 months of OPT training in the U.S. Despite this finding, the judge has allowed the current rule to remain in place for the time being. Accordingly, the 17-month extensions may still be issued to current and future OPT candidates. Stay tuned for updates.
