Optional Practical Training (OPT) Filing Dates
If you are an F-1 Status student, and this fall 2013 or winter 2014 is your last semester, AND you plan to apply for Optional Practical Training, you should apply no later than one month from the date of completion or final examination. That means at least one month before December 23 for fall, or January 23 for the winter session. If you file for OPT later than these dates, it may reduce the amount of time that you are allowed to work in the United States.
How to Apply:
1) You must have already filed a Degree Audit Application Form (DAAF). (The deadline was November 14.) For more information, contact an advisor or visit http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/onestop/forms-online.
For more information about Optional Practical Training please make an appointment to meet with an International Student Advisor: Iris Aroyewun-Birchwood, email@example.com or Xavier Remigio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First Deadline: Monday, December 23
Do You Have Travel Plans?
Are you planning to travel outside the United States during the fall months? If so, please come to our office at least a week before your planned departure date and ask an advisor to sign your I-20 or DS-2019. Remember that re-entry to the United States requires a recent (within 3 months) signature from a Designated School Official for F-1 status holders or an Alternate Responsible Officer for J-1 Exchange Visitor holders.
In addition, if you have recently applied for post-completion OPT you should ask an International Student Advisor regarding whether you can travel or if you should wait for your EAD card to arrive.
Appointments can be made by calling 212.772.4864 or via email at email@example.com or contact Iris Aroyewun-Birchwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or Xavier Remigio at email@example.com.
If you require a signature during Walk-In Hours please check in at room 1119 East and wait to be called. For fall 2013 travel (through the end of 2013), try to get your I-20 or DS 2019 forms signed before December 23. Our Walk-In Hours can be found at http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/studentservices/is/officecalendar
Tuition Payment Plan Available to International Students
TPP could be a way for current international students to stay enrolled during the spring semester or winter and summer sessions. Tuition payment plans are an interest-free way to break down your educational expenses into easy-to-manage installments, rather than one lump-sum payment. The plan is simple to use, and provides flexible terms with convenient payment options. You may visit http://www.tuitionpay.com for more information.
