All F-1 Students Enrolled in MArch Programs Eligible for STEM Extension

April 3, 2017

The School of Architecture is pleased to announce that all F-1 students enrolled in the M.Arch programs are eligible for the F-1 STEM OPT extension.  Effective May 2016, STEM OPT can be extended for a maximum of 24 months.  There are other eligibility criteria for the STEM OPT extension, which are explained here.

Please note that this change in CIP codes does not apply for those F-1 students pursuing a M.E.D. degree program as this program does not have specific building technology curriculum.
