On Tuesday, September 9, 2008 from 12:00 to 1:00 in B206, there will be a workshop on Optional Practical Training. Optional Practical Training is off-campus work authorization for international students in F-1 status. Second year students who are graduating in December will definitely want to attend this workshop. The processing time for OPT applications with USCIS are currently taking up to five months, so it is important to plan early for your OPT application.
