Post Completion OPT- Didn't graduate yet! How many hours am I allowed to work?


New Member

I am a thesis student and I have applied for the OPT in April 2019. However, my thesis wasn't accepted and was advised a few revisions. I couldn't cancel my OPT as it was too late by then. My OPT started on July 29th 2019. I was working on my thesis this entire semester and unfortunately again this semester it wasn't accepted and I couldn't graduate again. As I have already wasted about 5 months of my OPT I cannot afford to waste more of my employment time. I would like to know about the hours I am eligible to work as I am on my OPT and still not graduated.
