International Student Work Authorization

In order to be eligible for CPT approval, international students must be registered in an internship course. International students are strongly encouraged to have a conversation with the International Student Services Office to make sure you fully understand the parameters of your visa status and completing an internship.

Students are encouraged to plan ahead when securing an internship and getting it approved by their departments. Students should begin their internship search and have their application materials prepared during the term prior to when they hope to complete the internship.
