OPT Online Orientation
Post-completion Optional Practical Training
If you wish to apply for OPT:
Be certain that you are graduating.
Once you apply for OPT the dates cannot be changed and you cannot re-apply. If you realize that you have another course left to take after you applied for OPT, you will lose a substantial portion of your OPT. So don't apply for OPT until you are certain that you are done with your program.
- OPT is issued for up to 12 months.
- You can apply up to 90 days before graduation and up to 60 days after graduation. The sooner you apply the better!
- BEFORE you ask for a meeting with Dr. Hall, get the OPT Check list which is available on our website at: http://www.callutheran.edu/intl_student_services/forms.php
