Employment Information Update

Updating Your Address and Employment Status while on OPT

The new OPT regulation published in April of 2008 requires that you report information to your school while you are on F-1 OPT. While you are on your 12 month OPT period, you will have to report the following to us here on this form:

  • Your residential address
  • Your employer's name and address
  • Any changes in your employment (ending a job, changing jobs)
  • If you change your immigration status (for instance, to H1B)
  • OR if you leave the U.S. and will no longer be using your F-1 OPT

If you apply for and receive the 17 month extension of OPT, you will have to report the above AND you will have to complete the OPT report form every six months during the 17 month extension even if your employment has NOT changed.

You must fill out this form even if you are NOT currently employed. Please click here to read more on the new limit placed on unemployment while on OPT and what to do about it. Please see directions below on how to complete the employment information.
