OPT and AT Reporting Requirements

Are you a former University of Chicago international student on OPT or AT? Although you are no longer attending classes, your immigration status is still sponsored by UChicago.  In order to maintain your F-1 or J-1 status, you will have to fulfill your OPT/AT Reporting Requirements.

  • STEM Extension Students must report their OPT participation to OIA every 6 months.

You are required to update OIA within ten days of any changes in your employer or address.  Because you will no longer have access to cMore or the BoothPortal, you will notify OIA of the changes by completing the OPT/AT Update Form. Once we have your information, we will update your SEVIS record.

If you are on OPT, we also ask that you upload a copy of the front and back of your EAD with the update form if you have not done so already.

If you have already submitted an OPT Update Form online and your information has not changed, please disregard this message.
