Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a temporary job training opportunity that must be directly related to an F-1 student's major area of study. It is intended to provide a student with practical experience in his or her field of study upon completion of a degree program.
Information about applying for OPT is currently under review and will be updated on this website soon. If you are interested in applying for OPT during the fall 2021 semester, contact your international advisor to schedule an appointment to review OPT, requirements, and how to apply.
NOTE: Do not apply for OPT or STEM OPT until you have been issued an I-20 with an OPT/STEM OPT recommendation on page 2 of your I-20. Submitting an application for OPT or the STEM OPT extension without the correct I-20 will most likely result in your application being denied.
