Post-Completion Optional Practical Training (OPT) Tutorial


PLEASE NOTE: This tutorial was updated March 13, 2020 to reflect changes made at WSU due to COVID-19

Students are asked to complete this tutorial before contacting the Office of International Education (OIE) with questions regarding OPT and the application process.  After completing the tutorial, you will submit your documents to iss@wichita.edu for review by an International Student Advisor. The International Student Advisor will then mail you a new I-20 with OPT recommendation that you will submit to USCIS along with your supporting documents.

The purpose of this tutorial is to inform students about the process of applying for OPT.  We will cover eligibility requirements, expectations, and required documentation.  The information contained on our website is provided as a service to the international students, faculty, staff, employees, and administrators of Wichita State University, and does not constitute legal advice on any immigration, tax, or other matter.  Our goal is to provide useful information, but we make no claims, promises, or guarantees about the accuracy, completeness, or adequacy of the information contained in or linked to this website or any associated site.  As legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, and laws are constantly changing, nothing provided herein should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent counsel.
