8. Complete and submit the International Graduate Student Supplemental Form
If you are an F student, you have the option of working in the United States (after one academic year of study) by engaging in practical training during your program or after it ends. Practical training can provide valuable work experience by sharpening and adding to the skills you are learning in school. There are two types of practical training available for F-1 students: curricular practical training (CPT/internship) and optional practical training (OPT).
Recipients of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in certain STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields may be eligible for a one-time 17-month extension of post-completion OPT (for a total eligibility of up to 29 months). The 17-month Stem Extension OPT is approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Our International Student and Scholar Services office will assist you with this application.
