• US Universities that are not eligible for OPT after ASCIS loss of Accreditation by US Dept of Education

    Recently US Department of Education announced that itis no longer recognizing the -'ACICS' the agency which accredits some of the small US universities.

    International students attending schools that are being recognized by ACICS will not be allowed to get OPT (Optional practical training) and will not get H1B in Masters degree quota.

    US Department of Education says-
    This decision affects more than 16,000 international students in the United States attending nearly 130 Student and Exchange Visitor Program-certified schools and programs that are accredited by ACICS.

    If you are a current or prospective student of these schools, it's better to move to a properly accredited university. Here is how to find a accredited school: http://www.msinus.com/content/accred...ities-usa-671/

      One can apply for H-1B visa in this april I guess. And if the university finds a new accreditor then they can get 24month also.

      Do not publish bs info what you have no clear idea. What you published is complete bs man. university has 18 month to get its new accreditation and its not gonna effect on students since they have 18 months. If unversity will get another acceradition from a new accreditor everyone will be fine. If you are that much sure why the f*** you didn't used and reference.
