Curricular Practical Training (CPT)
Optional Practical Training (OPT)
Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a work authorization that permits international students with F-1 visa status the ability to work off campus after completion of a degree. OPT used after graduation means F-1 visa status can be extended to allow students to remain in the U.S. to work in their field of study.
