Confirmation of Program Completion
Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a benefit of the F visa status. OPT provides students with 12 months to pursue full-time employment in their field of academic study. An offer of employment is not required. In order for International Students and Scholars (ISS) to determine each student’s eligibility for OPT we must assess the student’s progress towards their degree program. To complete the assessment we must seek input from the student’s primary academic advisor (or equivalent official) to help us determine the student’s academic progress and date of degree completion. We appreciate your assistance in providing evidence to support this student’s eligibility for OPT. Please complete the information below to confirm the expected degree completion date for the student in which you are submitting this form.
