ICE Under Consideration of a Proposal to Expand STEM 17-Month OPT Eligibility

ICE is considering a proposal to enable F-1 nonimmigrant students on post-completion optional practical training (OPT) to qualify for the 17-month extension based on either (1) a prior STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) degree or (2) the most recent degree granted if in a STEM field. This change can be proposed as early as early next year.
