Optional Practical Training (OPT) allows international students on an F-1 visa status to work in their field of study off-campus. To be eligible, the student must complete 9 months of their degree. Most Roger Williams University students do OPT after they graduate. OPT allows a student to work for 12 months and sometimes longer depending on their degree.

It takes about 3 months to apply, so contact the Intercultural Center well in advance if you are interested in this opportunity.
