STEM OPT Rule Update

On February 5, 2016, DHS sent the final STEM OPT rule to OMB for review. This is the last phase of review before the rule is published in the Federal Register.

The District Court granted DHS’s motion to extend the stay of the vacatur of the STEM OPT rule from February 12, 2016 until May 10, 2016.

The Court clarified that its vacatur will not affect the legal status of F-1 students holding unexpired employment authorization documents (“EADs”) granted under the 2008 STEM OPT Extension rule, and their dependents.
