OIA News

Dear Students,

The Office of International Affairs is aware of the recent court ruling vacating the regulation that allows 17-month OPT extensions and cap-gap relief. The Department of Homeland Security is currently reviewing the court's determinations and will provide future information in the near future on how this will impact international students.

We will continue to monitor any reports from the Department of Homeland Security. As soon as the OIA receives further information, we will update students as soon as possible. We understand that this is a concern for students currently authorized for OPT and will do our best to update this information in a timely manner.  

Please see the attached Broadcast Message from the Student and Exchange Visitor Program​ for their Broadcast Message.
