    Hey Ron

    Is 17th month Stem OPT a Renewal EAD or New EAD ?

    The reason I ask is in I-765
    I am Applying for : Which Box to select ?

    According to USCIS 765 Instruction sheet

    Renewal EAD : An EAD issued to an eligible applicant upon the expiration of a previous EAD under the same category

    But Stem OPT extension belongs to Category c(3)(C), where as OPT belongs to Category c(3)(B)

    Hence the question NEW or Renewal ?
