Current International Students
International students in F-1 visa status can take advantage of an employment authorization known as Curricular Practical Training (CPT). The training is designed to allow students to gain experience prior to graduation in specific jobs, internships, or employment-related activities, relevant to their field of study. To apply for CPT, please download and complete the CPT form and have it signed by the Dean or Associate Dean of Faculty before meeting with Nusha Shishegar, International Student Advisor.
Optional Practical Training (OPT) is defined in the regulations as "temporary employment for practical training directly related to the student's major area of study." The Optional Practical Training form above must be completed by you and signed by the Dean or Associate Dean of Faculty. The OPT Checklist and OPT FAQ below will guide you through the process. When you have gathered the items on the checklist, please contact Nusha Shishegar, the International Student Advisor, to set up an OPT appointment.
