Well, due to COVID-19, many US consulates are closed. If I haven't got a U.S. visa before August, is there any way to solve it?

if you can't get your visa in time, you can take your fall semester courses online or you can defer your admdission to January or August.

Once the OPT term of 36 months (for STEM) has ended, what are the prospects for students to continue their career in the United States? Additionally, if a Student decides to opt for a 4+1 program, do they get an extended OPT because of their masters degree or is the OPT same for both undergraduates and graduates?
carina busser

Great. Thank you!
Marie Guier

Hello! My program is the MSEI and I am currently living in the US with a F2 Visa. Do you recommend that once the consulates are open, I travel to my home country and schedule there the appointment for my change or status or should I do it here in the US.
Eileen Chen
01:05:35
Our Career Services has many resources for our students, check it out here: https://www.usfca.edu/student-life/career-services-center

Additionally, at ustraveldocs.com I read that President Trump signed a proclamation suspending visa emissions for 60 days, so even if the Embassies and consulates open we still have this 2 month suspension, or does this not apply for student visas?
JIA GAO
