Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

This is a temporary employment authorization available to F1 students for a required internship or practicum, or a cooperative education program. Your employment may be during the academic year (no more than 20 hours per week) or during the summer (full-time) but regardless, it must be undertaken in conjunction with a credit-bearing course. There is no cost to apply, since this application is filed solely with ISS.
