Virtual F-1 OPT Workshops

Connect with Us!

OIE serves students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders with a hybrid approach that includes both virtual and in-person services.  While most services are provided virtually, some matters require in-person meetings. When meeting in-person is required, an OIE staff member will contact you directly to schedule a mutually agreeable day and time for the meeting. OIE is respecting social distancing and cleaning protocols as described in “Tech Moving Forward”.

Spring 2021 OPT Workshop Schedule


There is much to learn about the OPT eligibility criteria and the process students must complete in order to apply and receive their authorization to participate in OPT. We encourage all students that want to know more about OPT to attend our virtual workshops. OIE offers OPT workshops throughout the year to help students understand the application process, status maintenance requirements, travel expectations, and more. Students are not required to prepare materials prior to attending the workshop, but they are encouraged to review OIE’s OPT guidance prior to attending. We ask students log into the Workshop a few minutes early to ensure they don't miss any of the presentation. Thank you and we hope to see you there!
