Employment Workshops

 Optional Practical Training (OPT)

In this workshop, an ISSS advisor will go over the steps to apply for Optional Practical Training. Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a form of work authorization used by F-1 students, typically following the completion of their academic program. OPT workshops are MANDATORY for all F-1 students who will apply for OPT, and you MUST have attended the OPT workshop within 9 months of applying for OPT. OPT applications can take up to 90-120 days to process so we recommend that you attend an OPT workshop as soon as possible if you plan to apply for OPT in the near future. You only need to attend one.  All OPT workshops are held in the Classroom Unit Building, Room 201, unless otherwise noted.
