The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. law permits international students on an F-1 student visa to receive up to 12 months of full-time on-the-job training (paid) as a benefit of maintaining F-1 student status called Optional Practical Training (OPT).
This workshop is for individuals graduating in Spring 2014 on an F-1 student visa in a degree seeking program who wish to apply for OPT. You MUST attend an OPT workshop offered in Spring 2014 if you plan on applying for OPT at the end of the Spring 2014 semester.
