The International Student Services (ISS) Office is sponsoring a number of workshops on work authorization, CPT and OPT, for international students this autumn. For individuals studying on an F1 student visa status, they must get work authorization for most types of employment.
First year students may want to attend one of the CPT workshops to learn more about the process to prepare for a future internship placement. Second year students may want to check out the OPT workshop to prepare for post-graduation employment in the U.S.
For a full description of CPT/OPT as well as the schedule for the workshops, please click here. If you have any questions about the workshops, work authorization, or visa matters, please contact your assigned ISS advisor (each student is assigned to an ISS advisor by the first letter of the student’s last name).
