Curricular Practical Training

For frequently asked questions and answers related to CPT, please visit the following webpages:

F-1 international students interested in participating in an internship or co-op are highly encouraged to attend a CPT workshop. However, due to the current COVID-19 situation, we are setting up webinars for anyone who didn't participate in an in-person CPT workshop. 

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is off-campus work authorization for employment (whether it is paid or unpaid), such as an internship or co-op, for F-1 international students to receive further training. Come and learn how to obtain CPT authorization from ISS and what you will need to do to remain in status while you are authorized for CPT. This workshop/webinar will discuss the requirements, how to request authorization, and other information related to CPT.
