Attention International Students:

If you are completing your program this semester or in the summer term and interested in employment in the US after you graduate, come to a workshop facilitated by ISSO to learn about applying for Optional Practical Training (OPT) work authorization in your field of study. OPT is a benefit and extension of F-1 status, and requires an application to and authorization from the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), OPT can take up to 3 months to be processed.

You will get more out of the information session and better use your time it if you familiarize yourself with the PowerPoint in advance.
