H1B and Cap Gap

Primary tabs

On May 12, 2016, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin premium processing for cap-subject H-1B petitions requesting premium processing. Students who have timely filed a cap-subject H1-B with their employers should submit the Cap-Gap I-20 Extension e-form in iStart. OIE will review these requests and confirm if the Cap-Gap is approvable in SEVIS. Please do not request OIE to “check your status in SEVIS”, if you would like to see if you are eligible for the Cap-Gap please first submit the e-form.
