If you are graduating in Summer 2014 and you have plans to obtain employment authorization after graduation, you should start the Optional Practical Training (OPT) application well in advance of your graduation, as approval can take 2-3 months to obtain. The goals of the workshop are to provide information about OPT rules, regulations and application procedures as well as answering general OPT questions you may have.
Workshops start right on the hour and latecomers will not be admitted. It is recommended that you arrive early, as the workshops have limited space and fill up quickly.
If you are unable to attend a workshop due to scheduling conflicts, please contact ISSS at 217-333-1303 to set up an appointment with an advisor.
