Optional Practical Training (OPT) workshop

This workshop explains the application timeline and process for Optional Practical Training, the work authorization available to F-1 students after they complete their degree. All F-1 students who will complete their degree in Spring or Summer 2020 are encouraged to attend. ISSS staff will discuss the timeline for applying, how to apply, and what to expect once OPT begins. Each workshop lasts about an hour with time for questions afterward.

I'm a recruiter for CU Boulder OIT and we deal with a lot of immigration questions. I was just trying to better understand OPT status. This workshop was helpful in terms of understanding the application process and OPT in general. Very impressive presentation even if it only applies to recruitment tangentially.
