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 Rigzin Norbu, International Student Counselor.
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." Please download and complete the OPT form and have it signed by the Dean or Associate Dean of Faculty.
