Optional Practical Training (OPT) for International Students

With OPT, international students with F-1 status for two consecutive semesters who plan on working in the United States within their current field of study can receive work authorizations. Designated advisors at SFBU recommend students for OPT. However, the final approvals go through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). Students interested in the OPT process should log into their SFBU student portal to review the related OPT requirements.
