Mandatory for F-1 students completing studies in December or January who want post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT). All students seeking post-completion OPT must verify their completion of studies and submit a copy of their I-94 information (accessible via the I-94 retrieval website) immediately following the session. Because of the lengthy authorization process, students are strongly encouraged to come to an early session and must be physically present in the U.S. to apply for OPT. The International Student Advisor will only endorse the applications of students who attend one of these sessions.
