What is CPT?
Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is temporary authorization for practical training directly related to your major field of study—paid or unpaid. CPT is authorized by the ISS office.
“Practical training” can include:
- Internship experience (paid or unpaid)
- Cooperative (co-op) education experience
- Practicum participation
What is OPT?
Pre-completion OPT (OPT that is done prior to program completion), can be authorized either part-time (up to 20 hours per week) or full-time (20 hours or more per week). Whether you are granted part-time or full-time authorization depends on the request you submitted on your OPT application and is reflected on your Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Pre-completion OPT can be paid or unpaid training related to your major field of study.
