International Programs Office

The International Programs Office (or IPO) manages many facets of UMass's interactions with other countries, including helping international students go through the proper procedures for working while attending UMass Amherst and as a recent graduate. IPO's webpage has the most up to date information on working in the United States as an international student.

If you are planning on working in the United States, it is recommended you attend one of the OPT/CPT workshops that IPO hosts each semester.
