F-1 students graduating in SUMMER 2018 are highly encouraged to attend an OPT workshop. Workshops will cover important dates/deadlines, application materials, travel questions and information on maintaining your F-1 status. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session. Workshops run approximately 45 - 60 mins.
OPT Workshops will run on the following schedule until July 27th, 2018:
Fridays - 2PM
Workshops will take place in the ISSS Multipurpose Room located at 610 E. John Street, 4th floor. Please arrive early/on time as late students will NOT be admitted.
NOTE: OPT approval can take approximately 90 days. If you have an employment opportunity or are in talks with an employer, please plan ahead to ensure there is enough time for your application to be approved. There is no expediting service for OPT.
More information on OPT can be found here.
As federal regulations are subject to change, ISSS recommends students attend the OPT workshop in their final semester of registration. J-1s are not eligible for OPT.
