STEM OPT proposed rule released

In response to a federal judge that struck down the existing STEM 17 month OPT extension policy as a violation of the APA, the DHS has released an unpublished version of the proposed rule to essentially reinstate the policy. We expect the proposed rule will be officially published on Monday October 19th and we will be posting a summary next week. We will also be submitting comments to the DHS within the 30 day comment period.
