Notice to students on optional practical training

Please note that the F-1 OPT STEM extension benefit is in a state of uncertainty given a recent court ruling which vacates the regulation for OPT STEM benefits to F-1 students effective Feb. 12, 2016. Detailed information. F-1 students at WMU may still apply for F-1 OPT STEM so long as the law recognizes that benefit in the future. However, if the court does not grant the Department of Homeland Security's motion to extend the stay of vacatur, the current rule would expire effective February 13, 2016, and DHS suggested that it may have to consider options like returning any pending STEM OPT applications and requiring that applicants refile after the effective date of a final rule.
