    Answered . Generally, no. Sometimes a student's Optional Practical Training employment authorization card will reflect an A#, but not always. Usually the A# is assigned in connection with a permanent resident filing or removal proceedings. This may change in the future as SEVIS II is aimed at assigning a lifetime number to international students.
