When You Complete Your Program of Study
(1) Academic Training approved after completion of your program must be reduced by any prior periods of "Academic Training."
(2) "Academic Training" following completion of your program of study must involve paid employment.
(3) You must obtain a written offer of appropriate employment and present a copy to the IPS not later than the ending date of your program, or you will lose eligibility for "Academic Training" after completion.
(4) If you plan to leave the United States after you complete your program of study and re-enter the country for J-1 "Academic Training," you must obtain employment authorization before you leave. Otherwise you will have trouble re-entering. Consult IPS for advice.
