CURRICULAR PRACTICAL TRAINING (CPT)

Curricular Practical Training (CPT)国产偷拍视频 enables F-1 students to gain off-campus work authorization for internships or other work in the student’s major field. Generally, students may apply for CPT after having been enrolled in the academic program for a full academic year, and if the student has maintained valid F-1 status. Graduate students may be allowed to begin CPT during their first year if it is required as part of the college’s curricular program.

国产偷拍视频CPT employment may be paid or unpaid. If the internship is unpaid, CPT authorization should still be approved. Students are not allowed to participate in unpaid internship unless as part of a ministry practice program.

Part-Time and Full-Time CPT

CPT can be Part-Time or Full-Time, as long as the student maintains a full course of study with the University.

    国产偷拍视频● Part-Time CPT

  • Employment for 20 hours or less per week while you are also enrolled (full-time) for classes is considered Part-Time CPT. You must be careful to limit your work to no more than 20 hours per week. Participation in Part-Time CPT does not affect your eligibility for Optional Practical Training (OPT). Thus, there is no limitation on the length of time you may participate in Part-Time CPT. Part-time CPT is allowed during the fall, winter and spring quarters and during summer vacation.

    ● Full-Time CPT

  • Employment for more than 20 hours per week is considered Full-Time CPT. There is no limitation on the length of time you may participate in Full-Time CPT, but if you participate for 12 months or more you will not be eligible for OPT.

Conditions and Limitations

  • ● Students may be authorized for CPT for up to one academic quarter at a time. If additional periods of CPT are desired, the student must complete the renewal form by the start of each quarter.
  • ● Students have been enrolled as a full time F-1 student for one full academic year prior to participating in CPT (possible exceptions for graduating students).
  • ● Maintained good F-1 status throughout the program, including full-time student status even while on CPT (BA – 12 units, MA – 8 units).
  • ● Students must be in a degree-seeking program. Certificate and ESL students do not qualify for CPT.
  • ● CPT can be Part-Time or Full-Time, as long as the student maintains a full course of study with the University. Note that accruing over 12 months of full-time CPT will prevent students from having the opportunity to do an OPT.
  • ● All F-1 students working in the USA must acquire a social security number and be paid through the employer’s payroll system.

Applying for CPT

  • ● Step One
    • a. Obtain a letter from your employer.

      The letter must be on company/institution letterhead and include:
      • - The name of the company;
      • - Exact beginning and ending date of your employment (ending can be open);
      • - Physical address of the location where you will be working (including the zip code);
      • - Job title or brief job description;
      • - Number of hours per week (Part-Time CPT: not to exceed 20 hours/week).
    • b. Fill out “Student Eligibility for CPT Verification Form”.

    • c. Fill out the Student Information and Internship Information sections of “Advisor Verification Form for International F-1 Student Curricular Practical Training (CPT)” and then have your advisor fill out the middle section of the form. Your advisor must fill out the middle section of the form, not you.
    • ● Step Two

      Make an appointment with Olivet International Student Office (OISO) to obtain CPT authorization on the 3rd page of your I-20. The following items are required before such authorization can be granted. The appointment should be scheduled at least two weeks before you plan on beginning your internship. Please bring them to the appointment:

      • a. Current I-20
      • b. Student Eligibility for CPT Verification Form
      • c. Advisor Verification Form for International F-1 Student Curricular Practical Training (CPT)
      • d. Offer of employment letter from the company/institution where you will work

      Student is eligible to apply up to 90 days before the end of his or her first year of study. The actual CPT employment cannot begin until the first academic year is complete.

    • ● Step Three

      Once CPT is authorized, the student must obtain a SSN and be added to the CPT employer's payroll system to be legally participating in the CPT program.

    Social Security Numbers (SSN)

    Social Security Administration Office (SSA) generally issues SSN to people who are authorized to work in the United States. A verification letter should be requested to support your SSN application from OISO before going to the SSA Office.
