Request an I-20 for your F1 OPT application
After you have read through the OPT application materials, you can fill out the form on the next page to have us prepare a new I-20 for you with the OPT recommendation. You need the new I-20 in order to include a copy of it with your OPT application which YOU will send to the immigration service. We will email you when the I-20 is ready to pick up from the ISSO. If you have questions before completing this form, please read through the OPT application materials, or come in to speak with an advisor at the ISSO.
Please note: When you send in your OPT application to USCIS, you must provide a valid US I-94 Admission Record ("most recent entry page") showing F1 status in order to be eligible for F1 OPT. You can print out your I-94 "most recent entry" record here. You will include a copy of that most recent entry record with the F1 OPT application which you will send to the immigration service (USCIS).
You must apply for F1 OPT before you leave the US at the end of your program. If your program is over and you have left the US before applying for F1 OPT, you are no longer eligible for F1 OPT.
