Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

F-1 Curricular Practical Training (CPT) allows you, as an F-1 student, to accept paid, off-campus employment that is an integral part of the curriculum to your degree program.

CPT is typically done on a part-time (up to 20 hours per week) basis during the school year and on a full-time basis during vacation periods.  You may not begin CPT without prior authorization from the OIS.

You must have the CPT Form completed by your Academic Advisor (graduate students) or class dean (undergraduate students), and then MUST make an appointment online at the OIS to complete the CPT application.
