https://www.uscis.gov/opt mentions the post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT) grace period of 60 days after STEM graduation:
Initial post-completion OPT:
- Must apply within 30 days of your DSO entering the recommendation for OPT into your SEVIS record, and
- May apply up to 90 days before you complete your degree, but no later than 60 days after you complete your degree.
Has the post-completion OPT grace period of 60 days after graduation been extended due to the covid-19-related economic slowdown? (i.e., is there any way to get some exception to this 60-day rule after graduation and apply later than that?)
