Customer Question
Hi, I am in my...
Hi, I am in my OPT right now and it is ending on Jan 15th. I have applied for STEM extension and my application is under review right now. The company that I work for changed its legal entity name after I had submitted by application. The company's e-verify number is ***** the same but the name has changed. I have referred to the old name in i20 i765 and employee verification letter.I let my DSO know about this and they asked what needs to be updated to USCIS and they are not giving consistent answers. Last week they were saying both i20 and i765 needs to be updated but this week only i765 needs to be updated. I have updated that and sent it to USCIS.But I am still worried if my application is somehow affected by any of this. Could you tell me if I need to something here?

34;in SEVIS use the OPT Request link on the Student Information page to update the employer or employment status changes" Where do I do this?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 6 months ago

It's on the student information page. If you can't do it, your designated school official has access.

Hope this helps.
