International students studying at
TMU on an F-1 visa are eligible to remain in the United States for 1 year after

field of study. This extension of stay is referred to by the INS as Optional
Practical Training (OPT).
Before an international student can
complete an application for OPT, s/he must be recommended by his/her academic
advisor. The academic advisor must indicate that the student’s academic program
is reaching a certifiable conclusion.
note that TMU provides legal authorization for this student to complete his/her
application based on your recommendation.
