OPT Review Process

Many students choose to have their OPT application reviewed by an OIS advisor before sending it to USCIS.  We want to let you know that OIS is making some slight changes to improve the OPT Review Process.  We are adding a second advisor for OPT Review during our afternoon walk-in hours.
If you haven’t had your application reviewed by an OIS advisor yet and you would like to before sending it to USCIS, please follow these 3 steps:

  1. Assemble your entire application (G-1145, I-765, support docs, fee payment, photos).
  2. Attend afternoon walk-in hours (M, T, Th, F 1:00pm – 2:45pm) with your application.
  3. Select “OPT Final Application Reviewas the reason for your visit when you sign in on the computer.

By following these steps, you will be able to have your OPT application reviewed without having to wait in the normal walk-in advising line.  You will also have a chance to ask any brief questions you may have related to the OPT process.

Good luck in the OPT process!
