Additional F-1 Optional Practical Training Workshops
for Spring and Early Summer

The International Students and Scholars Office will offer two additional Optional Practical Training (OPT) workshops: one during the spring 2007 semester and another in early summer.

Each workshop will cover eligibility, timing of the application, deadlines and the application process.  At the end of the workshop, ISSO international student advisors will be available to answer questions.

Please visit the ISSO website for 
OPT application procedures:

REMINDER:   If you will graduate in May 2007, your OPT application must be received by the USCIS Vermont Service Center before May 20, 2007.  Therefore, the last day to schedule an appointment with an ISSO advisor to process your OPT application is May 15, 2007, though we strongly recommend that you meet with an advisor much earlier. Once at the USCIS Vermont Service Center, OPT applications may take up to three or more months to process.
