My STEM OPT expires on September 30. Do I get a grace period beyond that date? Would that grace period be indicated on my I-94?


One in OPT status typically gets the normal 60-day grace period at the end of the OPT period. The I-94 in this case should say “D/S” (duration of status) rather than being a specific date. (28.Aug.2017)
