To claim an exception to the substantial presence test, I need to file a form 8843.

I graduated from a college in US in 2017. Since then I have been working on OPT extension to my F1 Visa.

Now, the form 8843 part III question 9 asks: "Enter the name, address, and telephone number of the academic institution you attended during 2018".

I did not attend any academic institution in 2018, however, my student visa F1 is tied to the university I graduated from. For this question, should I fill in the name of the university or should I leave this blank?
