H-1B Cap Gap Extension Instructions

Students on OPT: will your employer file an H-1B petition for you on April 1? If so, depending on your OPT end date, you might need to request a new I-20 for the “H-1B Cap Gap Extension.” For more details about eligibility and instructions to request the new I-20, review our H-1B Cap Gap Extension information.
