Job program for foreign graduates of U.S. colleges has quadrupled in size

The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim area is among the nation’s top destinations for graduates in the OPT program, Pew found. The report highlighted USC, which ranked first among private, not-for-profit schools for the number of program participants: 27,100 students during the 12-year period that ended in 2016. UCLA ranked third among public colleges, with 13,600 such students in that period.
