Reporting Requirements and Documentation


Reporting Requirements and Documentation

These are the reporting requirements while on OPT for ALL students (these include both the Homeland Security requirements and those needed by your international student adviser). Please report directly to your international student adviser from your UCCS email address within 10 days of any change. Report all items each time you have any change to report:

  1. Your legal name and current address (not a PO Box)
  2. Degree major your OPT is based on (level, and major)
  3. EAD Card start and end dates
  4. How the employment reported is directly related to your degree in detail (this wording will be entered into SEVIS as you write it)
  5. Employer/Company/Business name
  6. Employer’s EIN
  7. Job Title
  8. Start and end (if known) dates of employment
  9. Hours per week
  10. Employer/Company/Business address (where you actually work)
  11. Employer/Company/Business address (if your hiring/supervisor is located elsewhere)
  12. Supervisor’s name and contact information (phone number and email address)

Also, whenever you leave a previous job, you need to report that with the exact last date of employment.

You must also send your international adviser the following:

  • A copy of your OPT application receipt, approval, and EAD card front and back, and mailer (the sheet the card is attached to, with bar code)
  • A copy of your employment letter (see ‘Documenting your Employment’ below)

You must also respond to any request for current information from your adviser, and check your UCCS email account daily for such requests.
