The STEM OPT application process now requires you to submit a Form I-983 to your DSO. While the form needs to be completed by the student and his/her employer, there are a few sections you may have questions about.
Please note that USCIS is taking a strict stance on third party placement arrangements. We recommend students and STEM employers review the USCIS webpage on STEM OPT Employers Requirements and Responsibilities and third-party placements. The NAFSA third-party placement article may also be helpful.
For help please consult the Employer & Student Guidance on Form I-983 (pdf).
