EAD card recieved but couldn't graduate


New Member
Hello sir/madam,

I'm an F1 visa masters student and I have completed all courses for my masters but failed to file an intent to graduate. I have been told that I couldn't graduate this fall semester 2019. I have to take at least 1 course to complete my graduation next semester which is gonna end in spring May 2020. My problem is, I have received my EAD card and I still remain subject to the three-month (90-day) unemployment rule. since I cannot graduate and cannot be in full time within these 90 days, I don't understand what other options do I have to solve this problem.

Can I take individual studies / online courses to graduate in spring and work full-time same time during my OPT?
