Are you an F-1 international student getting ready to graduate? You’ve probably heard of OPT or “Optional Practical Training” by this point in your academic career, but there’s a lot to keep track of while you’re also trying to balance your last semester and future career plans. This workshop is designed to give you a firm understanding of what OPT is (it's a form of work authorization for students in F-1 status), how to apply for OPT, the processing timeline, what documents you’ll need, travel advice, and reporting requirements. We also briefly cover tax, health insurance, and OPT extensions.
Due to processing times with USCIS, we highly encourage attending this workshop to prepare yourself to apply as early as possible (90 days before your graduation date)!
