Curricular Practical Training Assistance


Curricular Practical Training is for international students who:

  • are planning to obtain an internship in the United States
  • have accepted an internship offer in the United States
  • are doing an internship abroad during an academic semester and are only taking the internship course (no other courses)

To help you maintain legal status for your Visa, you need to participate in Curricular Practical Training which ties your internship to your academic status as a student. For more information about CPT and procedures, please email Brooke Linn, or Jessica Chapman,
