An introduction to Optional Practical Training (OPT) work authorization available to international students on F-1 visas. This session is designed primarily for students interested in learning about their options to use OPT before or after graduation. Staff and faculty interested in learning about OPT are also welcome to attend. We will discuss the purpose of OPT, the three categories available to students, eligibility and participation requirements, application process and timing, and will include time for audience questions. ISS will offer additional OPT workshops throughout the semester for students preparing their applications. Led by Gwen Sandford.
