MyOIE e-Form Instructions

For Graduated Students on Post-Completion OPT

Please follow the steps below to access e-forms in your MyOIE portal. 

Note: These instructions are for graduated F-1 students on OPT. Current F-1/J-1 students, as well as students who have not yet received their EAD card, should follow these instructions. Incoming students will follow these instructions.  

Go to and click the "Limited Services" button under "Limited Services for Students & Scholars." You will then log in with your Andrew ID and password.

Enter your:

  • University Identification Number: ANDREW ID
  • Date of Birth:
  • Limited Access PIN:  If this is your first time accessing MyOIE Limited Services OR you forgot your limited Services PIN, you can click “E-mail me my Limited Access PIN.” This button allows the system to send your PIN number to any email addresses you have on file with OIE.

After logging in, you will view your MyOIE portal homepage. Here, you will be able to view general information about your record and access available e-forms. Just like OIE's paper form process, you should only complete an e-form if your information has changed and needs to be updated.

To submit an e-form, select "F-1 Student Services" or "F-1 Practical Training" in the blue sidebar on your portal homepage. There, you will see available e-Forms; click the form you wish to submit. If you do not see the e-Form you are looking for, confirm you are in the Limited Services section of MyOIE by logging out of MyOIE and then logging back in again. 

For more information about requesting a Post-Completion (12-month) OPT employer I-20, see the OPT Reporting page. Students on STEM Extension (24-month) OPT, contact if you change employers. 

After selecting the e-form you wish to submit, complete the relevant and required fields. Required fields are marked with an asterisk (*). If you need to attach a document, only PDFs and image files (i.e., JPEG, TIFF, PNG) are accepted. When you're done, click "Submit."

If you made a mistake, the system will show you an error message. Follow the instructions in the error message before trying to submit your e-form again.

If your submission was successful, it will indicate that information at the top of the screen. Note: Different forms may have different confirmation messages.
