Optional Practical Training (OPT)

Current students applying for Post-Completion OPT should refer to the information and forms available here. The below forms are intended for students who have already been approved for OPT.

Post-Completion OPT

Students who are working on their first year of post-completion OPT are required to report updates to employment and address information. This information must always be up to date. The Student Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has created a Portal for students to use to report these updates. Please login in to your portal account to report these changes. 

  • Report employment and physical address updates: https://sevp.ice.gov/opt
  • Issues with your SEVP portal account? 
  • If you are unable to login to your SEVP account or are having trouble with reporting your employment updates, please contact the ISSO directly for guidance.


Note: If you are a former student and experiencing difficulty logging into the below iGlobal E-Forms, try clicking on the "TrueYou Identity Manager" button instead of University of Nebraska-Lincoln when prompted to login
