OPT/STEM OPT Employer Update
As an F-1 student or graduate on OPT or STEM OPT, your F-1 immigration record must always reflect your current employer information. As specific details about your employer are required to comply with immigration requirements, please fill this online form completely.

You are welcome to include a copy of your offer letter with the new company if you like, though this is not required.

The IES office will update your I-20 with your employer details and mail the new I-20 to you at the address you indicate.

Thanks, and please reach out to ies@umbc.edu with any questions!
