Launch of New OIS System Impacts Document Processing Timelines
The Office International Services (OIS) has announced its new management system, Trojan International which will launch on March 20, 2023. Based on this announcement, Viterbi Admission and Student Engagement’s (Graduate Student Affairs and Viterbi Career Connections) process and timeline will reflect the OIS launch of their case management system.
Please Note For Curricular Practical Training (CPT):
The final CPT deadline for Spring is March 13th. We will continue to review CPT applications until March 13th using Viterbi’s current CPT application. Please note, if you submit your request by March 13th you will receive a CPT I20 on or after March 20th. Summer CPT will be submitted to the new Trojan International system after March 20, 2023.
In preparation for Trojan International, OIS must alter document processing timelines in the weeks leading up to the launch. OIS Live advising and email response times will not be impacted during this transition.
