Upcoming Workshops for Spring 2019

Interested in Curriculuar (CPT) and Optional (OPT) Practical Training? Need more information to get started? Attend one of these workshops.

In the first half of each workshop, ISS staff will discuss CPT and the second half will focus on OPT. 19th presentation will be held in the Parlors on level 5 of the Kansas Union. ISS advising staff will explain the purpose, eligibility, and application procedures for F-1 Curricular and Optional Practical Training. Plan to attend both segments to learn about the full range of options for employment related to your F-1 academic program. These workshops will mention, but will not discuss in detail, the 2-year STEM OPT extension option.
