Optional Practical Training (OPT) Reporting Requirements

All students on OPT must report any change in employment or address during OPT within 10 days. Also, inform ISSS if you decide to leave the US and not return on OPT, or change your status during your approved OPT time. Please use the links below to navigate to the correct form for the information you need to report. You can submit multiple forms and each form multiple time, if necessary:

  • All students on the OPT STEM Extension must submit current employer information every 6 months. Please use the STEM employment reporting form to report the following information to ISSS.
  • If you change status from F1 (e.g. to H1B, A1, G4, Permanent Resident, etc) email a copy of your confirmation of Change of Status.

Change of Address During OPT

If you change your address, at any time during OPT, please submit your new address information within 10 days via the myau portal.

After graduation your student portal becomes your alumni portal, log-in with the same username and password. If you are having trouble accessing your portal please use the Reset an expired or forgotten password link below the log-in boxes.
