The second part of the presentation addresses questions related to Optional Practical Training (OPT) for F-1 students who are interested in utilizing this employment authorization during the summer, or who plan to complete their academic program in 2021.

Please note: Students who plan to complete their academic program during the fall 2021 semester are strongly advised to apply for post-completion OPT as early as 90 days before their anticipated completion date.
