F-1 students on an approved Optional Practical Training (OPT) must meet various reporting requirements in order to maintain status.
Requirements on Post-Completion OPT:
Student on Post-Completion OPT have 90 days of aggregated unemployment.
If you are struggling to find a job, please consider volunteering (your volunteer work will have to be related to your major).
You are also required to work full-time (21 hours plus).
All students who have been approved for Post-Completion OPT should have access to the SEVP Portal.
The link should have been sent to your personal email. If you didn’t receive it, it might mean that the Office of International Programs does not have your current personal e-mail address. Please email the Office of International Programs to update your information.
The SEVP Portal should be used to update your current address and phone number (which is required within 10 days of the changes). The SEVP Portal should also be used to add/update information about your employer.
If you are struggling with using this website, contact the Office of International Programs to provide you an alternative way to report your employment information.
