Optional Practical Training (OPT)

After you complete your degree at Moorpark College, you may be eligible to work full-time for up to 12 months in a job related to your major.

Eligible students are encouraged to apply during the last semester of their program.  OPT requires Department of Homeland Security (DHS) approval.  You may start working once you receive an employment start date from DHS.
