Optional Practical Training

 OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING (OPT)

Optional Practical Training is an employment benefit available to students in valid F-1 status.  OPT allows students to work in a temporary position that is directly related to their field of study, as indicated on the Form I-20, for up to 12 months.  Applications for OPT are reviewed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and take approximately 3-4 months to process.  Students must attend an OPT informational meeting or workshop with the International Student Advisor before requesting a recommendation for OPT.
