Spring 2021 Optional Practical Training (OPT) Sessions
If you are planning to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT) during Spring 2021, it is mandatory that you attend one of the following OPT Sessions with the Office of International Education (OIE). We cannot schedule individual advising appointments to provide this information, so plan to find a session that will fit your schedule.
Spring 2021 OPT Sessions will be held on the following dates:
|Friday, January 22, 2021||9:00AM EST||Zoom Meeting|
|Monday, January 25, 2021||3:30PM EST||Zoom Meeting|
|Wednesday, February 10, 2021||11:00AM EST||Zoom Meeting|
|Wednesday, February 24, 2021||3:00PM EST||Zoom Meeting|
Join the Zoom Meeting at Least 10 Minutes Early!
As always, you can find OPT information, the Academic Advisor form, and slides on the OIE website – along with other dates to register for an OPT session in Handshake.
*Students in J-1 status who are expecting to complete their program this semester should read the handout on Academic Training and schedule an appointment with their J-1 Alternate Responsible Officer (an OIE advisor if CMU issued your DS-2019) if you have additional questions.
