Fall 2018 Optional Practical Training (OPT) Sessions
If you are planning to apply for OPT this semester, 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 ahead to find a session that will fit your schedule.
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).
