OPT Information Form

Students on post-completion OPT may not accrue an aggregate of more than 90 days of unemployment under the initial 12-month period of OPT.  Students granted a 17-month OPT extension may not accrue an aggregate of more then 120 days of unemployment during the total 29-month OPT period.  USF international students report employment by providing International Services with the name and address of the employer upon commencement of employment. 

All USF international students on OPT must use the form linked below to report the following information to maintain their immigration status:

  • The name and address of your new employer(s)
  • Unemployment 
  • Any change to the name or address of your employer(s)
  • Students with an approved 17 month (STEM OPT) extension must also make a validation report every 6 months starting on the date the extension begins and ending when the OPT ends.  The validation is a confirmation that your name, your address, employer name and employer address, and/or loss of employment is current and accurate.
  • Any change in your name or address (also update OASIS)
  • Additional employer(s)
