Description: International Center staff will provide an overview of the process of preparing to file your post-completion OPT application with USCIS including tips on how to avoid common issues. We'll also share information on maintaining F-1 status during pending and approved OPT. OPT topics related to travel, troubleshooting, OPT reporting, health insurance, and abandoning F-1 OPT will be discussed. This workshop is intended for students that have already completed the OPT Online Workshop and are preparing to mail the OPT application to USCIS.
To fully utilize this session, please bring your laptop computer to access Form I-765 or bring a paper print out of the I-765 since we will do a walk-through of the government form.
