Hiring International MS Students at SNRE: Did You Know that They are Authorized to Work in the U.S. for up to 29 Months after Graduation?

  • Generally, upon graduation, students are eligible to work in the United States for 12 months under what is called Optional Practical Training (OPT). In 2010, the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency extended the period of OPT by an additional 17 months for F-1 Nonimmigrant Students with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
  • This means that international students graduating with a Science degree in Environmental Studies are authorized to work in the United States for 29 months after graduation for employers that use the E-Verify system.

  • The University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment career services office does not provide legal advice.  Employers interested in providing internships for School of Natural Resources and Environment students are encouraged to consult with their own advisors regarding compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), ownership of intellectual property, general liability issues or any other potential areas of concerns. 
  • The decision to grant academic credit for a student internship is made by the School of Natural Resources and Environment for the sole purpose of determining whether the student's internship experience satisfies the academic standards established by the School of Natural Resources and Environment.  As a result, employers should not rely on the School of Natural Resources and Environment's decision to grant academic credit as determinative of their legal responsibilities under the FLSA.  Employers (not the University) are responsible for ensuring that interns are paid in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
