  • EAD and OPT STEM Update – 10:00 AM on 11/14/2016 – Gerberding 142
    • Campus departments often ask us if they can employ individuals who hold an Employment Authorization Document (EAD card). The answer is often “Yes!” An EAD is a temporary work permit and USCIS has over 40 categories of EAD eligibility, including F-1 students taking part in Curricular or Optional Practical Training (CPT and OPT), J-2 dependents of exchange visitors, certain spouses of H-1B temporary workers, and green card applicants. This training will cover the purpose and limitations of  the EAD and will include important updates to OPT extensions for STEM graduates.
