Being well informed about OPT before you apply is a must. ISS feels very strongly about this, which is why we require all students to complete a workshop. ISS will be offering Optional Practical Training (OPT) Workshops to go over in detail the application process, student responsibilities, and other considerations.
A complete OPT Workshop schedule will be available on Orgsync as soon as room reservations can be confirmed. Be sure to either register to attend your preferred session or access the online training module when it is available.
Completing a workshop (in one of the formats- ISS highly recommends the in-person sessions!) during the semester that you intend to apply for OPT is required as part of the application process. You do not need to have a job offer or any definitive employment plans to complete a workshop or apply for OPT!
If you have questions, stop by ISS during walk-in hours. Remember, only ISS staff can advise you about the procedures for OPT!
The schedule's posted! Check OrgSync for all of the sessions. Online training will be available on September 16.
