Following is an excerpt:

Im suggested that the employer sit down with the student to go over what the training plan should be before it’s written. Once the training plan is complete, it needs to be submitted to the student’s designated school official, who will then issue a form known as an I-20, which will allow the student to apply for the work authorization, he said.

However, if a student is applying for the extension before the Aug. 8 deadline, the student must have at least 150 days remaining on their current work permit, Im warns.

“If they're at 149 or 140, then they're out of luck,” Im said.
