    Currently, I am in the post-completion OPT period, and I am interested in applying for the 17-month extension of my OPT.
    As per my I-20, the CIP code for my master's program is 31.0501 Health and physical education/Fitness, General.
    However, according to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement website, the CIP code of my master's program is not eligible for STEM 17 months extension program.

    I graduated with an emphasis in Exercise Physiology, which is eligible for the STEM 17-month extension program. The CIP code for exercise physiology is 26.0908, which is applicable for 1 months extension.
    My university kinesiology program includes exercise physiology along with branches.

    Please guide me what should I do??

    You have to resolve this through your school's DSO.
