OPT (Optional Practical Training) is temporary (usually 1 year) employment for international students on F-1 visas who have just completed a degree (BA, MA or PhD). The employment ("training") must be directly related to your major. You may apply for OPT even if you do not yet have a job offer. Students are required to attend an OPT workshop before applying for OPT. All workshops are held in the Global Education Center and last approximately 1 hour.
