Location  Student Services Building, 1200 West Harrison Street, Conference Room A

F-1 students interested in applying for Optional Practical Training (OPT) are required to attend an introductory OPT Workshop. The OPT workshop covers essential information about the benefit such as eligibility requirements, application process, and timeline. Students will leave with an understanding of how and when to apply for OPT along with the necessary application materials. Students may attend an OPT Workshop whenever the interest sets in, however, it is recommended to attend during the first weeks of the final semester of study.

This workshop is open to current UIC international students on an F-1 visa. Registration for the workshop is not required but students must arrive to the workshop on-time in order to ensure participation. Workshops begin promptly and late arrivals cannot be accommodated.
