F-1/OPT Optional Practical Training

(F = Full - as in full time) is a non Immigrant Visa

You may be eligible for Optional Practical Training (OPT) if you are an F-1 student in the United States and you seek to start a business that is directly related to your major area of study.


Students in English language training programs, however, are ineligible for OPT.

Maximum possible work authorization:

  1. An F-1 student may be authorized for up to 12 months of OPT, and becomes eligible for another 12 months of OPT when he or she seeks another post-secondary degree at a higher degree level. 

  2. An F-1 student with a qualifying Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) degree may apply for a 17-month extension of their post-completion OPT.  

  3. F-2 visas are given to dependents of an F-1 student. F-2 visa-holders are prohibited from any form of compensated employment.

  4. Minor children may attend public schools.
