Optional Practical Training Workshop (OPT)

F-1 students interested in having practical work experience in the U.S. after completing their academic program are encouraged to attend the OPT Workshop.

Optional Practical Training (OPT) is temporary employment available to F-1 students. The employment must be related to the student's field of study and commensurate with the student's education level. F-1 students may be eligible for up to 12 months of OPT per degree level. Attend the OPT workshop to learn more about how to request this F-1 work authorization and how it can be utilized after graduation. All F-1 students intending to engage in OPT must either attend an in person workshop or complete the Online OPT Workshop prior to requesting OPT.


Each session will have time for Q&A after the presentation.
