Optional Practical Training (OPT) Employment Reporting System
F-1 students on OPT must report their employment information to the Office of International Services (OIS). Students can update their employment information once they receive their Employment Authorization Document (EAD) in the mail, the start date on the EAD has been reached, and they have a job offer.
In addition, immigration regulations require all international students to report any change in their local address to OIS within 10 days of moving. Students on OPT can use this reporting system to update their U.S. address. This information will be updated in students' SEVIS records.
