In the first deadly hate crime against an Indian since Donald Trump became president of the US, a young man from Warangal district in Telangana was shot dead from close range in San Francisco, California on Saturday evening.
Indian students studying in the United States are concerned about their future, after a tweet suggested that US President Donald Trump’s administration would cancel the Optional Practical Training Extension for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) Students (STEM OPT).
In a big blow to lakhs of Indian students, the US department of education has revoked its recognition to the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).
If you are an F-1 student participating in optional practical training (OPT) and your employer closes for an extended period during the winter holidays, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program does not consider this time as unemployment.
After months of uncertainty during the campaign season, employers finally know that Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States.
If you are an F-1 international student applying for the 24-month science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) optional practical training (OPT) extension, you must submit a complete application package to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Students participating in a 24-month science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) optional practical training (OPT) extension may train with multiple employers as long as they maintain compliance with all STEM OPT regulations.
The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is a federal database, meaning the data and records housed within the system are property of the U.S. government. Conversely, schools provide and maintain academic records, and therefore a student’s grades and transcripts are property of the school.
Students participating in a 24-month science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) optional practical training (OPT) extension must train with a bona fide employer who can sign the Form I-983, “Training Plan for STEM OPT Students.”
