STEM OPT Application & Reporting Form

If you change employers, you will need to upload an I-983 Final Evaluation and a new I-983 Training Plan to the below Employment Reporting Form.

If you are reporting a change in employer or employment location, you can request a reprinted STEM OPT I-20 in the below Employment Reporting Form.  If you are requesting a new STEM OPT I-20 for any other reason, you must submit an I-20 Request Form after submitting your Employment Reporting Form below.


You will be prompted to report your entire employment history on STEM Extension OPT (all current and previous employers) at the bottom of the form after selecting the appropriate employment option(s). Also, upload a copy of your most recent EAD card even if you have already done so in the past.

Students on STEM extensions are required to file this form every six months, whether there are changes or not.
