Optional Practical Training Session (OPT)

Date: Friday, 10 Oct 2014 Time: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Location: International Center, Room 302

Description

F-1 students may apply for one year of work authorization, called Optional Practical Training (OPT), for use after graduation. Come to this session to learn more about how to apply for OPT.

Reserve your spot by registering below. Click on "Register."

Before coming to the session, check out our OPT Mythbusters Series to learn about the common misperceptions students have about OPT, like:

  • I need a job offer to apply, right?
    You don't need a job offer to apply for OPT.
  • OISS will approve my application so it won't take very long.
    OISS does not approve OPT applications. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) approves OPT applications and it takes around 3 months for approval.
  • If I have a job offer letter, the USCIS will approve my application more quickly. 
    That was once true but it isn't anymore.

You can also learn more about how to apply for OPT on our website
