Optional Practical Training (OPT) Session at Heinz

If you are planning to apply for OPT this semester, it is mandatory that you attend an OPT session. We encourage you to apply early because OPT authorization can take up to 90 days and you cannot start work without this authorization. For your convenience we will be holding an OPT session specifically for Heinz students:


OPT Session at Heinz
Wednesday, Feb. 6th
12:00-1:30 pm
HBH 1001

Prior to attending the session, read the OPT instructions and you can have your academic advisor complete the OPT Recommendation Form. Bring this form, along with your I-20, passport and I-94 card to the session. Please note that the session will start promptly at 12:00, so you must be on time. The doors will shut at noon and those not present will have to reschedule.
