ISS Immigration Advisors will not be available the week of April 15 – 18: they will be on three different continents! Some of our advisors are traveling for work while others are visiting their families in their home countries.
If you are graduating in May and plan to apply for OPT, we recommend that you submit your OPT application before the week of April 15. If you cannot prepare your OPT application by then, you can continue to submit an OPT application up until the end of your 60 day grace period (although early application is highly recommended).
Program extension applications and I-20 requests will also be delayed the week of April 15 – 18. However, the ISS Office is still maintaining normal business hours (Monday – Friday from 8:30 – 5:00). You are welcome to drop off your applications or otherwise seek assistance during this week. We just won’t be able to process OPT applications, CPT applications, program extensions, or I-20 request forms until the week of April 25th. ISS is dedicated to providing you the best service and will resume normal operations the week of April 25th. Thank you for your understanding!
