Greetings from the International Students and Scholars Center at Arizona State University. We are reaching out to all students who may be graduating in either fall 2023 or spring 2024 to assist you with starting your search for Optional Practical Training opportunities once you graduate. If you are not graduating in the next semester, do not worry — you can still use these resources.

This highlights opportunities to hear from alumni who have successfully navigated the OPT process and transitioned to H-1B status. Below are several upcoming events that you can participate in.
