Hi,I’m Tina. I’m from MA Graphic design department. Spring 2022 is my last semester in AAU. My U.S. visa had expired last year and I was unable to return to Beijing to update my visa information because of the COVID-19. Can I still apply for an OPT for the next semester? Is this legal?

@Tina, yes, you can apply for OPT with expired F-1 visa as visa is only for reentry permit to the US.
