Asked over 1 year ago - Irving, TX

Hello, I've applied for my OPT extension In June. I regularly track my application status,suddenly i received a email from USCIS saying "On July 19, 2013, your Alien Registration Number was changed relating to your I-765, APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION."

Can you explain why is my Alien Registration Number changed and what is going on in the background. I'm worried.

Additional information
