OPT & CPT Workshops Spring 2022

Join a workshop this semester to learn more about Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT). Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all workshops will be held virtually.

What is OPT? Post-Completion Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a 12-month, full-time work authorization granted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to work in your field of study once you complete your degree. Students who are graduating at the end of this semester and are interested in working after graduation must attend one of the following OPT workshops:

Tuesday, March 8th from 9:00am-10:00am
Wednesday, April 6th from 3:00pm-4:00pm

What is CPT? Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is work authorization in your field of study. You must earn academic credit to participate in CPT. This can be done through Work-Based Learning or an integral part of an established curriculum in which the opportunity must be required for your degree. Students who are interested in learning more about working while studying must attend one of the following CPT workshop:

Tuesday, March 8th from 3:00pm-4:00pm
Wednesday, April 6th from 10:00am-11:00am
