OPT Update Form

Information Update for Students on OPT

While you are on F-1 OPT, you are required to report information to your school about your employment. Please complete the form below any time any of the following change:

  • Your residence address
  • Your mailing address, if different
  • Your employer's name and address
  • Any changes in your employment (ending a job, changing jobs)
  • If you change your immigration status (for instance, to H1B)
  • OR if you leave the U.S. and will no longer be using your F-1 OPT

If you apply for and receive the 17 month STEM extension of OPT, you will have to report the above AND you will have to complete the OPT report form every six months during the 17 month extension even if your employment has NOT changed.
