3 What is OPT? Optional Practical Training is a temporary employment authorization by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) that allows F-1 students to gain practical work experience. Allows for off-campus work authorization in a student s area of study (Post-Completion OPT: 12 Months). Student must be in full-time F-1 status for at least one academic year. Available to all majors and students in certain area of study may be eligible for a 24 months extension near the end of the 12 month period. You are only eligible for 12 months of full-time OPT for each higher degree level earned.
4 Are you eligible for OPT? Post-Completion OPT Have you been in a valid student status for one academic year? At PSU, one academic year means enrollment for consecutive: Winter Summer Quarter Summer Winter Quarter Spring Fall Quarter Fall Spring Quarter Will you be completing your program of study at PSU in the next 90 days? The application for OPT cannot be submitted more than 90 days before your program completion date. Have you engaged in Curricular Practical Training (CPT)? You must not have engaged in a full-time Curricular Practical Training (CPT) for over 12 months at the same educational level. You DO NOT need to have a job offer to apply for OPT. The authorization is based on your program completion, not a specific employer.
5 Types of Qualifying Employment OPT Employment must be a minimum of 20 hours per week in a job that is related to your degree program. The burden of proof is on the student to demonstrate the relationship. The types of employment allowed during the initial 12-month period of OPT includes: Paid employment Multiple employers Work for hire (commonly referred to as 1099 employment) Self-employed business owner Employment through an agency Unpaid/Volunteer employment

Request an OPT I-20 The I-20 will be ready for pick-up after 1) you have submitted the OPT request form, 2) International Office has reviewed your completed application, and 3) you have cleared your balance with Finance Office. 3.

If your name is not registered at the address, you must use the C/O notation and the name of the friend of family member who lives at the address to ensure delivery. If you fail to use this notation, the card may be returned to the Service Center as undeliverable.

Please see DSO if there are concerns that the application will not arrive on time.
29 Step 3: Mailing Your OPT Application Packet

Skyharbor, Circle S, Suite 100 Phoenix, AZ Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, U.S. Virgin Islands, or West Virginia USCIS P.O. Box Dallas, TX USCIS Attn: AOS 2501 S. State Hwy. 121 Business Suite 400 Lewisville, TX 75067
32 The Application Deadline USCIS must receive your complete OPT application no later than 30 days after the OPT I-20 has been issued. The issue date is located next to the advisor s signature on Page 1 of the OPT I-20. Please account for mailing time. Additionally, USCIS must receive your application before the end of your 60 days grace period. You should apply for OPT before you graduate/finish coursework. Your application must be submitted to USCIS from within the U.S. If you exit the U.S. after your program completion date without applying for OPT, you cannot return and will lose your option for OPT.
33 Post-Completion OPT Time Frame Apply for OPT Apply up to 90 days before completion of degree but no earlier. Start date- 2 months (60 days) to choose from after completion date 60 days Degree Completion Date Engage in OPT (up to 12 or 36 months) 60 day grace period OPT Application Deadline
34 Step 4: Receive Your Employment Authorization Document (EAD) Card
35 I-797 Notice of Action You should receive the notice by mail within 2-4 weeks after mailing the OPT application to USCIS. The I-797 is very important. If you lose the receipt, there is no way to replace it. The I-797 is necessary if you want to: 1) Inquire about the status of your OPT application 2) Travel outside the U.S. when your OPT is pending. Receipt Number The case number for the OPT application at USCIS. Check the status of the case on the USCIS website at: Received Date Date when USCIS begins processing the application. (It may not be the actual date the application was received, but it is when the case was entered into the system.) Address Information Verify your name, date of birth, and address on the I-765 receipt notice.
36 If There is a Problem with Your Application If there is a problem with your application, the USCIS will send you a notice by mail called a Request for Evidence (RFE). An RFE does not mean that your application has been rejected. It simply means that you need to send in additional documents before your EAD can be issued. Getting an RFE will delay the processing of your application usually by about one month. In some cases, if too many items are missing from your application, the USCIS will return the entire application to you. If this happens, you must make the corrections and send the application before the end date of your 60-day grace period. To avoid delays, review your application materials for completeness and sign all forms before mailing them to USCIS.
37 The Employment Authorization Document (EAD) Review card to make sure the information is accurate. Present your EAD to employers as proof of your legal work authorization in the US. The EAD is a required document for entry to the US during OPT. Send a copy of your EAD card to PSU Career Services along with the Career Placement Information form ( and the Job Offer Letter.

41 Employment Requirements You MUST work a minimum of 20 hours per week in a position related to your field of study. You CANNOT exceed more than 90 days of unemployment while on OPT. Days of unemployment prior to your EAD start date do not count towards the 90 days. It is your responsibility to keep records of your employment and any periods of unemployment.
42 Travel Documents for Re-Entry Documents Before Completing Program & Before EAD Issuance After Completing Program & Before EAD Issuance After Completing Program & After EAD Issuance Valid passport Valid F-1 visa stamp (if applicable) OPT I-20 with a valid travel endorsement signed within 6 months by DSO Evidence of continued enrollment (e.g. Enrollment Verification) Evidence of financial support OPT receipt: I-797 Notice of Action Job offer letter from employer EAD (Employment Authorization Document) Strongly recommended Strongly recommended Strongly recommended Strongly recommended Your admission to the U.S. is always at the discretion of the Customs and Border Protection Officers. To avoid problems, you must have the required documents outlined above.
43 Important Information on Travel Avoid long absences from the U.S. during the OPT period. Time spent outside of the U.S. while unemployed by a U.S. employer counts toward your 90 days of unemployment. Attempting to re-enter the U.S. close to the expiration date of your OPT can be risky. You must not enter the U.S. in a status other than F-1. this may result in the loss of your OPT eligibility. Travel after Program Completion, But Before OPT Card is Received There is a high risk associated with travel and return while your OPT is pending after the program completion date. If there are any problems with your application, you may not be able to respond to USCIS in a timely manner, which could delay processing of your EAD. If your OPT application is denied while outside the U.S., you will not be able to re-enter the U.S. in F-1 status and will not be able to reapply.
44 Applying for an F-1 Visa on OPT If you are traveling abroad and your F-1 visa has expired, you must obtain a new F-1 visa before returning to the U.S. When going to your visa interview, bring the documents below. 1.
