OPT Employer Reporting Requirements
DHS requires F-1 students to report the employer’s name and address, and dates of employment, for all jobs held while on OPT. No employment information is entered in SEVIS when ISSS submits the initial OPT recommendation. Students should report the employer’s information as soon as possible after beginning work in order to avoid losing F-1 status due to excessive unemployment time. Once the information is reported, ISSS will update the student’s SEVIS record accordingly.

Students must also provide an explanation of how each job held is related to their major or program of study at UNCW.
