How to Get your CPT ASAP
Friday, Sept. 17 at Noon in the Old Champlain Atrium
Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is an off-campus employment authorization for international students in F-1 status. It allows students to do an internship, or have other temporary employment, for experience that is directly related to their program of study. Come to this workshop to learn the regulations governing CPT and when it can be used. You will also learn what you need to do to submit a successful application! This workshop will be led by an advisor from International Student and Scholar Services. Register in hireBING.
