Reporting Requirements While on OPT

Any time there is a change to your employment, you must contact the International Student Advisor every six months with the following information:

  • Job Description (1-2 sentences of how employment is related to your major)
  • Job Title
  • Number of hours per week
  • Name of employer
  • Physical address of employer
  • Employer Identification Number (EIN is optional but highly recommended)
  • Name of your supervisor
  • Phone number and email address of your supervisor
  • Your employment start date
  • End date of previous employment (if applicable)
  • Your SEVIS ID number (may be found on the top left corner of your I-20)

We will update your information in SEVIS which will allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to verify that you are currently employed and not in violation of the 90-day unemployment rule. 

REMINDER: Report to your DSO every six months to confirm the information listed above, even if none of your information has changed.
