The University of Oklahoma International Student Services (OU ISS) has been providing services to international students for over fifty years. We assist more than 2,000 international students and their dependents from over 130 countries. ISS provides advice on issues related to student visas and US immigration regulations, as well as activities and programs to help students get involved in the international, OU, and local communities.

Premium Processing is available for F-1 Students who have already submitted their application for OPT or OPT STEM Extension (application is not yet approved)
Beginning in April 2023, the option to pay for premium processing will be available for F-1 students who are filing an initial Form I-765 for Optional Practical Training (OPT) or STEM OPT Extension.
USCIS plans to expand premium processing to Form I-539, which is used to change from one visa status to another in the US. This will be useful for students wishing to switch from a visa status that does not allow study and/or work to a visa status that does, such as F-2 to F-1.
