OPT Filing Update

On 04/12/2021 USCIS announced that they will be accepting I-765 forms for OPT electronically. The official notice can be found here. The Office of International Education is currently reviewing the process and will provide more detailed instruction once we have had time to evaluate and monitor this new procedure. In the meantime, we recommend continuing to use the mailing instructions for OPT application found here (for 12 month OPT) or here (for the STEM Extension to OPT). The notice from USCIS specifically mentions that they will continue to accept and process paper applications received by mail. If you do choose to file electronically, please continue to use the OIE address for the “mailing address” on the form.


USCIS has extended certain flexibilities to applicants filing form I-765 for OPT as of 02/26/2021.

Please read through the announcement carefully.
