Optional Practical Training (OPT) Information for F-1 Student Status Students
Is Fall 2013 your last semester? If you are planning to complete your studies on December 23, you should plan to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT) by that date.
First, you will need to submit a Degree Audit Form (DAAF) by November 14. You can find the form at http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/onestop/forms-online. The Optional Practical Training forms can be found here: http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/studentservices/is/forms.
Deadline: Monday, December 23
Optional Practical Training appointments are now available with the International Student Advisors. Contact Iris Aroyewun-Birchwood at firstname.lastname@example.org or Xavier Remigio at email@example.com for an OPT application appointment.
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 Students 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that if you require a signature during walk-in hours, please check-in at Room 1119, East Building and wait to be called.
