Immigration Sessions

The ISSO offers sessions covering important immigration topics throughout the year. In addition to Orientation sessions, other sessions include may OPT, other employment authorizations, taxes and additional special topics.

All students interesting in applying for Optional Practical Training (OPT) after graduation are required to attend an OPT workshop.  We offer OPT workshops each month throughout the academic year.  During Fall 2017, ISSO will offer the following OPT workshops:

  • Wednesday, September 13 at 4:00 PM in the Grace Conference Room (Higgins University Center)
  • Sunday, October 1 at 2:00 PM in the Grace Conference Room (Higgins University Center)
  • Tuesday, October 24 at 12:30 PM in the Lurie Conference Room (Higgins University Center)
  • Monday, November 13 at 6:00 PM in the Grace Conference Room (Higgins University Center)

 

After attending a session, students will be able to apply for OPT through the ISSO's OPT application process. OPT applications are approved by the US government. The average processing time is 3 months.
