I-20 Program Extension

Commencement Visa Letter Requests 

  • Sample Invitation Letter
  • OIA does not provide visa invitation letters for commencement.  Instead, we have provided the following guidance to help you write a letter to the consular official requesting that your friend/family member be granted a visitor visa to attend your commencement ceremony.
  • Students who will need a visitor visa to attend their own commencement ceremony should use the commencement letter provided by the Registrar's Office with their visa application.  

Optional Practical Training (OPT)

  • NSU OPT Application Packet
  • Effective 4 September 2018, Nova Southeastern University will no longer ship any documents to USCIS on behalf of a student.  Students will be notified when their OPT-endorsed I-20 have been created and will be responsible for picking up and shipping their entire OPT applications directly.  The Office of International Affairs recommends a trackable shipping method.  USCIS must receive your OPT application no more than 90 days after the date in which your OPT was recommended in SEVIS, as listed on page two of your new I-20.  Applications received after this date will be denied by USCIS.
  • Form I-765 (USCIS OPT Application)
