Where to Complete OPT Reporting
ISS recommends doing all reporting through iHawk. SEVP will give you an option to do some limited reporting through an SEVP Portal. The portal is optional and ISS discourages you from making reports directly to the government. Reports through iHawk will be reviewed by ISS for compliance before submitting updates to SEVIS. Also, ISS will automatically print a new I-20 when necessary.
