F-1 Optional Practical Training (OPT) Reporting Form

You are required to submit details about your current employment activities and primary work location, as well as a valid email, phone number, and residential address. The form below allows you to report required information easily and quickly.

Upon receiving the completed form, the International Services Office (ISO) will update your SEVIS record accordingly. However, if the information provided is incomplete or inaccurate, this will create delays for your required SEVIS reporting. Please complete the form thoroughly!

Failure to report employment information may result in a termination of your SEVIS record, based on OPT unemployment limits. Updates must be submitted within 10 days of any change.

Use the OPT Reporting Form as often as necessary to ensure ISO has your most current information on file.

If your OPT will expire or you will no longer maintain your F-1 status through the University of Rochester, please use the Student Departure Form to notify us of your plans.
