Optional Practical Training for STEM students
May 24, 2016 - Dec. 31, 2026
CANCELLATION POLICY: The ISS STEM OPT Fee is a non-refundable administrative fee. This non-refundable fee is separate and apart from the USCIS STEM OPT Application fee. ISS is unable to neither review your STEM OPT application documents nor issue the STEM OPT I-20 without receipt/confirmation of payment of the fee. To request a refund, please contact your F1 Advisor, who will provide necessary details to determine if the student is eligible for a refund (e.g. ineligible for STEM OPT Recommendation I-20 due to CIP Code).
EFT Policy: Please note that this does not apply to credit or debit card payments.
For STEM OPT Questions, please contact your Specific F1 Advisor
