  • Confused when to apply OPT

    Hi Friends,
    I will be completing my graduation in Computer Science this October and still i did not apply for OPT, what am planning is to apply after my course work that is in October mid as because we have 60 days grace period to apply for OPT after graduation so that i can start my OPT from January atleast,
    Now the problem is that as i complete my graduation in October i don't want to start my job from that moment itself, my plan is to apply in October and after apply i'll be moving to different state(my friend's place) and in the mean time while my OPT is under process i'll take my job training through consultancy and will start working from January.
    So what i need is that can i apply OPT in October and move to different state, and is it good if i apply in October or else do i need to apply prior 90 days before i complete my studies?
    Will this create any problem?
    Please help me in this issue,
    I appreciate all your replies,
    Thank you.

          It depends how long it takes to process your application.You can always choose your start date later. In my case I applied right after my graduation and selected the my start date as last date I can put in OPT card, so that I can have enough time to find job. All the best!

            Put start date after completion of ur masters . If you have job in ur hand start date most be joining date otherwise give some time so OPT period will not waste
