OPT Employment Update Form
Students on OPT are only allowed 90 days total of unemployment. It is critical that you report to the Center for International Education office where you are working, and any time there is a change in your employment or contact information (such as home address, phone number or email). By completing this online form, CIE office will update your record with immigration so that they know you are working. Immigration will terminate a student's I-20 once 90 days of unemployment is accumulated.
