What is the I-983 form?

Form I-983 works as an official training plan and should clearly state the STEM OPT student learning goals and confirm the employer's desire to help the student achieve these goals. If a student who is currently on a 12-month OPT requests an extension for 24 months, both the student and the employer must fill out this form.

What I need the I-983 for?

The form operates for international students who are on an F-1 visa for obtaining a degree under the STEM program, work for employers registered in E-Verify, and who received an initial grant after completing studies related to such a degree to apply for a 24-month extension of optional practical training (OPT). I-983 may be followed by other necessary immigration forms.

Filling out the I-983

The form has 5 pages and consists of 6 sections to complete:

  • Section 1: Student information;
  • Section 2: Student certification;
  • Section 3: Employer information;
  • Section 4: Employer certification;
  • Section 5: Training Plan for STEM OPT students;
  • Section 6: Employer official certification.

    When you’re a student, you deal with PDFs a lot… Newsletters, various worksheets, official forms you need to fill in and sign, etc… To me, filling out a PDF form used to be among the trickiest and most time-consuming things ever. But then a friend of mine introduced me to PDFLiner, and oh my God, my life has changed since then. It’s easy to use and has so many great features. Just awesome, I love it!
