USCIS permits students in F-1 status to work in the United States so that they may reinforce what they have learned in university and college degree programs. This benefit is called Optional Practical Training (OPT). Students are required to attend an OPT workshop before applying for OPT.
The ISSS OPT Workshop will help you to understand the OPT application process and your rights and responsibilities while you are on OPT.
Available only to University of Maryland College Park students. Student ID required at session.
