F-1 OPT Employment Reporting Form

If you require a reprinted OPT I-20 to reflect a change of employer or employment location, you must submit an I-20 Request Form after submitting your Employment Reporting Form.


You will be prompted to report your entire employment history on post-completion OPT (all current and previous employers) at the bottom of the form after selecting the appropriate employment option(s). Also, upload a copy of your most recent EAD card even if you have already done so in the past.

For STEM Extension students who have been approved for an additional 7 month STEM extension or have been approved for 24 months: If you change employers, you will need to email a new I-983 form to istemopt@ucsd.edu PRIOR to filling out this form. Delays in submitting the I-983 form may be counted by SEVIS as days unemployed, so we recommend you submit this as soon as possible.
