F-1 OPT Information Update Form: Address and Employer Information

This form is to be used by Dartmouth College-sponsored F-1 international students who are approved for post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT). These students are required by U.S. regulations to report certain information to the sponsoring school:

All students approved for F-1 post-completion OPT and STEM OPT are required to report to the sponsoring school:


1) Any change of name or address; and 
2) Employer information including name and address of employer, dates of employment, relationship between employment and degree, and loss of or change in employment.

F-1 Students with a pending STEM OPT extension must report a change in employer, and the new employer must be enrolled in E-Verify.  The change in employer must be reported to OVIS and OVIS will update the SEVIS record.  The student must then submit an amended Form I-765 application to the appropriate USCIS Service Center, including the new employer E-Verify number and a copy of the receipt from the initial I-765 application, as well as a letter of explanation.  There is no fee associated with the amended I-765 application submission.  Please consult your OVIS advisor before submitting an amended I-765 application.


F-1 Students with an approved STEM OPT extension must also make a validation report to OVIS every six months starting from the date the 17-month extension begins and ending when the student's F-1 status ends.  The validation is a confirmation that the student's name and address, employer name and address, and/or loss of employment is current and accurate. The report is due to OVIS within 10 business days of each reporting date.
