Hello 🐠- I had gotten laid off when my stem extension was due and then managed to find a job just in time to apply for the stem extension but USCIS just denied my application. I am not sure what to do at this point of time. Can I appeal? Or is this the end of the road for me in this country? Any advice would be appreciated to help extend my stay in the country and hopefully continue working here.

What's your current status? How many more days do you have left?

like

Current status: Stopped working today. University yet to respond. I don’t know if I am eligible for 60 day grace period. I already had close to 2.5 months of unemployment between May to July.

Denied why

Why was it denied? Stem extension usually gets approved, hence my question

Was your application received before the last day of your EAD?

On the day of.

Yeah. USCIS is very strict with deadlines. I797 states that continued work authorization is only granted is form i765 is receipted before i766 (EAD Card) end date. Therefore, you may have been out of status before the denial even occured.
