Your employer petitions the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS) to grant you an H-1B visa to work at their company.
Your post-completion OPT ends. You have 60 days to leave the U.S., apply for a change of status, or move to another degree program.
If an employer has filed an H-1B petition for you and you have been receipted or approved for the H-1B, your OPT will be extended to September 30 (the day before H-1B status begins).
ISSS will issue you a "cap-gap" I-20 that shows your OPT has been extended.
Your OPT grace period ends.
If an employer filed an H-1B petition and you have not been receipted or approved, we recommend you consult with an immigration attorney.
If you have been receipted, your "cap-gap" I-20 is your current proof of employment authorization.
Your H-1B visa status begins.
Email email@example.com a copy of your H-1B approval notice or visa stamp in your passport. ISSS will close your F-1 record.
