Services and Activities
Are you graduating in December or May? Do you need information about how to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT)? Do you want to incorporate Curriculum Practical Training (CPT) into your academic plan?
WHAT IS OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING?
OPT is a benefit of F-1 immigration status that permits up to 12 months of off-campus employment for the purpose of gaining practical experience in your chosen field. While you may work for any employer in the United States, the job duties must be directly related to your major area of study and commensurate with your educational level.
