Mailing Applications (as of July 18, 2014)

 

The Center for International Studies will no longer mail Optional Practical Training (OPT) applications to USCIS within the last 2 weeks of the students’ 60 day grace period.

 

Students submitting an Optional Practical Training (OPT) application to USCIS within the last 2 weeks of their 60 day grace period must chose to either send their application to USCIS themselves or pay for the Center for International Studies to send their application to USCIS on their behalf (please speak to the Center for International Studies front desk for associated costs).

 

**All Optional Practical Training applications submitted during the last 2 weeks of the 60 day grace period MUST be mailed through an overnight/express service to ensure arrival at USCIS prior to the end of the 60 day grace period.**
