Apply for CPT
The training must either be a required part of the established curriculum, or something for which the student will receive academic credit, or training/experience that is deemed integral to the course of study.
Students are eligible for Curricular Practical Training after they have completed two full semesters (fall and spring) in valid F-1 status (including enrolling full-time each semester and possessing a valid I-20). Time spent on an approved full-time study abroad program may be counted toward the two-semester requirement as long as the student has completed one semester in the U.S. before studying abroad.
This form can be picked up in person from the ISSO office.
