CPT: Curricular Practical Training

Please read this information carefully and follow the instructions if you are interested in participating in an off-campus internship or job, as Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization from the ISC will be required before beginning the internship or job.

In addition, the ISC offers several F-1 Employment Authorization Info Sessions each semester, where we discuss the rules for on-campus and off-campus employment/internships. You can watch a recording of our most recent virtual Info Session by visiting the Educational Workshops webpage
