USCIS Announces Online Filing Options for F-1 Students Seeking OPT

USCIS announced that F-1 students can now file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, online if they are filing for pre-completion OPT, post-completion OPT, or 24-month OPT STEM extension. The option to file the form online is only available to F-1 students filing Form I-765 for OPT. Per USCIS: “If an applicant submits Form I-765 online to request employment authorization on or after April 15, but is eligible for a different employment authorization category, USCIS will deny the application and retain the fee.”
