All About OPT and CPT

These workshops will tell you all about Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

OPT is the post-completion year of employment eligibility available to qualified F-1 students. You must take and pass the quiz at the end of the workshop in order to request an OPT I-20. You may take the quiz more than once.

CPT is used for off-campus employment/internship/volunteer opportunities while you are pursuing a degree. There is no quiz required to apply for CPT.

Find the forms you need to apply for OPT and CPT after you have viewed the appropriate presentation.

If you need accommodation for these workshops, please contact the International Education Office.
