What is OPT?
Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a type of work experience that a F1 student can generally gather through a temporary employment. The employment or the work is often related to the subjects of study or the academic program of the students. As per the rule, a student can receive a maximum 12 months of hands on-practical experience for each degree level. Students who graduate with a qualified degree, and are currently in an approved post-completion OPT period based on a designated STEM degree may apply for a 17-month STEM extension of their post-completion OPT.
Eligibility for OPT
You may apply for the OPT employment option if you meet the following criteria:
You must be in legal F-1 status for one full academic year and be in good academic standing
Student must not have worked full time for 12 Months or more on CPT
You must be enrolled in your last semester of classes required to earn an associate degree.
A student is not required to have a job offer to apply.
Employment must be directly related to your field of study.

There are two types of OPT
Pre-completion OPT: This is a type of OPT where people currently pursuing degree programs acquire work authorization to do work related to their field of study. The work may be part-time during academic quarters and full-time during vacations.
Post-completion OPT: This is a type of OPT for people who have completed their degree requirements, and requires working at least 20 hours/week to count as OPT employment and are not simultaneously enrolled as students.
Curricular Practical Training is NOT intended as a way to begin a job before OPT is approved. It is your responsibility to reasonably expect that you will have permission to work by the time you are to begin employment. If you have completed your courses and the necessary research for your thesis or dissertation, you are not eligible for CPT.
