STEM-designated major

Bentley’s Information Systems Audit and Control degree program has been assigned a major code that corresponds with the Department of Education and Department of Homeland Security’s STEM designation list. STEM majors are in high demand across many industries. In addition to a positive career outlook, international students on F-1 visas may apply to USCIS for a 24-month STEM extension of the standard 12-month Optional Practical Training (OPT) period, which if approved would result in a total of 36 months of U.S. work authorization to intern or work in the U.S. to gain experiential training after completing their degree.
