Curricular Practical Training


Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is a form of work authorization for students whose degree programs require certain training as an integral part of their established curricula.  This is a part of the authorization for international students studying and working in the US.

You can only do CPT during your program, and it requires a specific position (paid or unpaid) that is directly related to your field of study. It’s authorized for one semester at a time.

For complete information, check the ISSS website:
