Curricular Practical Training

CPT Overview

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is an off-campus employment option available to F-1 students when the training (i.e. internship or employment) is considered an integral part of the established curriculum and directly related to the student’s major. “Training” refers to paid or unpaid work/study experience, internships, or cooperative education.

 

Time

CPT can only be used during a student’s program of study.

CPT must be renewed each semester

CPT approved for part-time (20h or less per week) or full-time (20+ hours per week).  Full-time CPT granted for summer semester only.

  • Students who use 12 full months of full-time CPT become ineligible for OPT under US immigration law.
