This section covers the regulations and requirements for F-1 students and F-2 dependents to maintain status. If you have further questions about F-1 or F-2 status please contact a Foreign Student Advisor.
F-1 students on an approved period of OPT are required to report changes to personal and employment information to the ISS Office within 10 days of any change. It is the student's responsibility to provide ISS with the required information so we can update SEVIS. To report a change in your information please fill out and submit an online OPT report by logging in to isslink.uark.edu and selecting the F-1 Practical Training tab, Optional Practical Training, and then Report OPT. Once you submit this form you have completed your reporting requirement for the change in your information. A Foreign Student Advisor will update the information within our required reporting period and will email you once your report is processed. Please allow 30 days for the report to be processed by an advisor.
If you have questions about filling out the form please contact a Foreign Student Advisor.
