On the evening of October 1, 2004, the first day of fiscal year (FY) 2005, USCIS announced that it had already received enough H-1B petitions to meet the FY 2005 H-1B cap. All cap-subject cases received after the end of the business day October 1 will be returned under specific guidelines set by DHS. DHS has not released details on whether there will be special treatment for F-1 students, as there was when the FY 2004 cap was reached. AMDOC#: 200410005
