Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

CPT Overview

Practical training authorization permits F-1 students to take a job that is directly related to their field of studies and commensurate with their educational level.

In most cases, you must have been a full-time student for at least nine months prior to applying for practical training permission. You may work in practical training either prior to or after completion of studies.
