Services for International Students and Scholars

Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

Attention! There has been a revision to policy that now allows F-1 international students to work on-campus and have CPT at the same time. However, students are still not allowed to have SGA’s and CPT at the same time. Please keep in mind that some colleges may have their own policies regarding on-campus employment and co-op at the same time. If your co-op department does not allow you to do both then you will not be able to.

Information for F-1 Students

What is Curricular Practical Training or CPT?

CPT stands for Curricular Practical Training. It is a form of work authorization available to F-1 students before their program end date. CPT is a required or integral part of an academic program therefore optional experiential opportunities are not eligible for CPT.

  • CPT authorization must be obtained for each and every co-op, internship, practicum, clinical and corporate residency, or any other experiential training whether on or off-campus.
  • CPT can be either full time (More than 20 hours per week) or part time (20 hours or less per week)
  • CPT can be either paid or unpaid. Unpaid off-campus opportunities still require OGS authorization. Authorization is required regardless of compensation.
  • CPT is employer, location, and date specific. The employer’s name and address and the precise start and end dates must be authorized by the OGS in advance in SEVIS. Students are not allowed to work outside of these dates or parameters without receiving authorization first from the OGS.

Students cannot start employment prior to obtaining CPT authorization from the OGS. Working for even one day outside of the dates authorized by the OGS is a violation of student status. Any orientation or training days, even unpaid ones, must be authorized by the OGS in advance. Any extensions, cancellations, or changes to the dates or employer must be first approved by the co-op coordinator or academic advisor and then authorized by the OGS prior to the change.

Eligibility Requirements for CPT

In order to be eligible for CPT, students must meet all following requirements:

  • Must comply with all college academic eligibility requirements and policies for any experiential opportunities including co-op.
  • Must always be making satisfactory academic progress towards degree completion. CPT should not cause a delay in the completion of a student’s academic program.
  • Be in valid F-1 status.
  • Must have completed at least one academic year which is defined as two full-time semesters or three full-time quarters. Change of Status and Transfer Students please read section below!
  • Requesting CPT within current program dates. CPT cannot go beyond the program end date which can be found on the first page of the I-20.
  • Be enrolled in a co-op course or enrolled in a program required course that specifies a required off-campus experiential component in the syllabus.
    • The student is enrolled in this course for the entire period of authorization that is being requested.

Please note that it is your responsibility to maintain your current visa status. In order to apply for CPT at Northeastern you must be both academically eligible as well as compliant with federal regulations as outlined above.

One Academic Year Eligibility Requirement for Change of Status Students

Students changing their immigration status to F-1 may use time from a previous immigration status towards meeting the one academic year requirement.

One academic year is defined as three quarters or two semesters!

  • The academic year must meet full-time F-1 standards as defined below:
    • Graduate students: Minimum of 8 total credits, 4 of which need to be completed on-ground.
    • Undergraduate students: Minimum of 12 total credits, 9 of which need to be completed on-ground.
  • Enrollment in both Summer 1 and Summer 2 terms combined can count as one semester or one quarter towards meeting the above one academic year requirement, including on-ground enrollment in both Summer 1 and Summer 2 terms.
  • Time in an English language program does not count.

If you are changing your immigration status to F-1 and would like to engage in CPT before meeting the one academic year requirement after your change of status is approved, you will need to contact OGS to make an appointment with an advisor and bring a copy of your I-797 approval notice.

One Academic Year Eligibility Requirement for Transfer Students

Students transferring to Northeastern may be able to use time from a previous institution.

One academic year is defined as three quarters or two semesters!

  • The academic year must meet full-time F-1 standards as defined below:
    • Graduate students: Minimum of 8 total credits, 4 of which need to be completed on-ground.
    • Undergraduate students: Minimum of 12 total credits, 9 of which need to be completed on-ground.
  • Enrollment in both Summer 1 and Summer 2 terms combined can count as one semester or one quarter towards meeting the above one academic year requirement, including on-ground enrollment in both Summer 1 and Summer 2 terms.
  • Time in an English language program does not count.

If you are transferring to Northeastern and would like to engage in CPT before meeting the one academic year requirement, you will need to contact OGS to make an appointment with an advisor and bring copies of all relevant official transcripts to review your eligibility for CPT.

Selecting Dates for CPT Authorization

The image below can be used to help determine the start and end dates of the term(s) that students will be enrolled. Please note that each semester starts with a white line that represents the first day of classes and ends with a white line that represents the last day of finals. The short spaces in between the terms represent either winter break or the few days that exist between the end of finals for one term and the start of classes for the next term.

Disclaimer: Please note dates must always be approved by the academic or co-op program associated with your enrollment.

When and How to Apply for CPT

To participate in an off-campus opportunity in the United States, F-1 students must obtain Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization from the OGS. The OGS will deny any requests for CPT that have not already been reviewed and approved academically by the appropriate advisor, co-op coordinator, or SEVIS Contact.

Step 1 – Complete the eform Fill out the eform with all requested information and documents. The documents that you will need are the following:

  • I-94 that indicates “Class of Admission” as “F-1” and “Admit Until Date” as “D/S”
  • Passport that is valid for at least the start date of the CPT being requested

Step 2 – Route Application to Secondary Approver For a walk-through of how to complete the e-form and how to send the e-form to the appropriate Secondary Approver, please see video at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtKozskXbDk&index=5&list=PLHbqblR-JbypZBHq29NQUv0qiqIAMOTEH

Step 3 – Secondary Approver Reviews Student Information The Secondary Approver who receives your application will review the information you have entered and determine if they approve it academically. If they do approve, the Secondary Approver will then submit your request to OGS. Upon receipt of your application from the Secondary Approver, OGS will process your application in up to 10 business days. If the Secondary Approver does not approve of the request, they will email you directly regarding their decision.

Step 3: OGS Reviews Application The OGS will examine the student’s documents to determine if a student is eligible under F-1 federal regulations to participate in CPT. If your CPT request is approved, you will receive an email from OGS with further instructions when your I-20 with CPT authorization is ready for pick-up. If your CPT request is denied, you will receive an email from OGS with instructions on how to proceed.

Step 4 – Document Pick-Up Once notified by OGS, you must pick up your I-20 from our office or arrange for shipping if needed. You must have CPT authorization and have collected your updated I-20 with CPT authorization prior to commencing your work experience. If you are unable to collect or receive your documents before your start date but after you have been approved by OGS, please call OGS to determine what your final approved CPT start date is. Please check the OGS website for current office hours and closures.

How CPT Affects Optional Practical Training (OPT) Eligibility

If an F-1 student exceeds 364 days of full-time CPT (more than 20 hours per week) at a degree level (bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate) they will lose their eligibility for OPT at that degree level.

Part-time CPT (20 hours per week or less) does not accrue towards the 364 day limit.

When counting CPT days, every day between the start and end date of CPT counts (including the start and end dates). The days that you are counting are the days that you had authorization, not the days that you actually worked. This means that even if it was a weekend, holiday, vacation etc. it still counts if you had CPT authorization.

It is the responsibility of the student to keep track of how much CPT time has been used per degree level. Students can use past I-20’s to keep track of this. OGS also provides an eform titled CPT Authorization History Request. This eform will provide you with a screenshot of the CPT time that you have used at your current degree level at Northeastern. Time used at another institution is not available from Northeastern.

Some students may be required  by their curricular program to complete more than 364 days of full-time CPT at a degree level. Students in this situation should note that going over the 364 day mark is not a violation of their F-1 status but does trigger the loss of OPT for that degree level. 

OGS does not keep track of whether or not you will be exceeding the 364 day mark when you are applying for CPT. Please make sure that you are counting carefully before selecting dates if you are approaching 364 days.

Unauthorized Employment

Unauthorized employment will place the student in serious violation of his or her F-1 status. According to immigration regulations, students who have their SEVIS record terminated for engaging in unauthorized employment are not eligible to apply for reinstatement within the United States. In order to regain status, the student may need to leave the United States and re-enter the country in valid F-1 status with a new I-20. Each situation is unique and requires evaluation to determine the best course of action. Please note that re-entry on a new I-20 requires the accrual of one academic year of full-time enrollment to regain eligibility for future benefits including CPT and/or OPT.

Please contact an advisor at the Office of Global Services if you feel that you have a situation that requires evaluation.

Updating Your CPT Authorization

What are CPT Updates?

While on Curricular Practical Training (CPT) it is important that you update OGS when there are changes in your authorization. These changes include employer, location, date, number of hours worked per week (full-time/part-time) and cancellations. It is important that you do not engage in these changes until you have received your updated I-20 from OGS. Also note, that OGS will not update CPT unless you have approval from the original advisor who signed off on your CPT Authorization Request form.

 

CPT Eligibility

Can I do CPT in my final semester?

OGS will only authorize CPT in the final semester if the student’s degree program meets the following requirement:

  • Student is required to enroll in a course that requires CPT in order to complete degree requirements.

You must also make sure to maintain your on-ground enrollment requirement during your final term!

As a reminder – you must also have approval from your co-op coordinator or advisor to engage in CPT in your final semester in addition to meeting the above OGS requirement.

Can I do remote work from home for CPT?

Routinely working from home is not allowed under CPT authorization which requires hands-on experiential training. Occasional work from home when sick, on vacation or during business trips outside of the office is permissible.

Can I get CPT for my independent study course?

Unfortunately, independent study courses do not qualify for CPT authorization.

Do I need authorization for an internship, co-op etc. that is unpaid?

Yes! Any work for a course that takes place off-campus must have prior authorization, even if this work is unpaid.

Is there a limit to the number of hours per week I can work while on CPT?

In order to know the answer to this you will need to understand what kind of CPT authorization you have. you can find this information on the second page of your I-20. If your I-20 states that you have part-time CPT then this means that you can never exceed 20 hours per week. If your I-20 states that you have full-time CPT then this means that there is no limit to the number of hours per week that you can work. However, you must always check with your advisor or co-op coordinator to see if they have a limit to the number of hours per week that you can work.

Do I need authorization for training dates?

Yes, all training dates require authorization. Remember, just because an opportunity is unpaid does not mean that it does not require authorization.

While on CPT

When can I start working after applying for CPT?

F-1 students can only begin working after they have received or picked up their newest I-20 with CPT authorization from OGS and when they are within the valid start and end dates listed on the second page.

How will I know if I have CPT authorization?

You will know if you have CPT authorization by checking the second page of your most recent I-20. On the second page of your I-20 you will be able to see all the details of your employment authorization.

Can I do a co-op/Internship and take classes at the same time?

Remember, CPT is curricular practical training. This means that you must always be enrolled in a course that requires you to be engaging off-campus. So, whenever you have CPT authorization, by default you must be also be enrolled in courses. If you would like to enroll in additional or supplemental courses (to the one that is already requiring you to engage off-campus), you must check with your co-op department or advisor to see if there are academic or university restrictions that would prevent you from doing so.

Can I work on-campus while I have CPT?

Yes, students are allowed to work on-campus while they also have CPT. However, students are not allowed to work on an SGA (Stipended Graduate Assistantship) and have CPT at the same time.

Please keep in mind that some co-op departments may not allow you to work on-campus and be on co-op at the same time or may have restriction on how much on-campus employment is allowed while on co-op. If this is the case, then you will need to listen to your co-op department’s rules.

My employer offered to extend my co-op/internship on a part-time basis. Can I do this?

As a general rule, co-op is typically not allowed to be part-time. You will need to consult with your co-op coordinator to determine if you are eligible to continue part-time.

Remember, all CPT (full-time and part-time) must meet all eligibility requirements. If you wish to extend your CPT authorization on a part-time basis this would need to meet all CPT eligibility requirements listed under our CPT Basics section.

After CPT is Completed

Does part-time CPT count towards the 364 day mark that affects my OPT eligibility?

No, part-time CPT authorization does not count towards the 364 day mark that affects OPT eligibility.

How can I find out how much CPT time I've used?

As a reminder, it is the student’s responsibility to keep track of how much CPT time they’ve used. Students can see how much CPT time they’ve used by looking at past I-20’s. Students can also request a screenshot of their current SEVIS record from OGS using our CPT Authorization History Request on our forms and guides page. This will show students all periods of CPT they have used at their current degree level.

Please note that OGS will not provide students with a count of how much CPT time has been used. OGS will only provide a listing of any periods of authorization that have been given. Also, OGS is not able to provide information on CPT used at other institutions. Students should contact previous institutions for any CPT time used there.

Information for Advisors, Co-op Coordinators and SEVIS Contacts

How to Get Authorized to Sign CPT Paperwork

Due to the complexities of CPT and the severe repercussions of unauthorized employment for F-1 students, OGS requires that anyone signing off on CPT must be approved before being allowed to sign off on paperwork for students. There are two types of trainings: Co-op Coordinator or CPT SEVIS Contact depending on the kind of paperwork that you will be signing off on.

These trainings cover topics such as: 

  • What requires work authorization?
  • What is CPT and OPT?
  • CPT Eligibility Requirements
  • CPT Application Process
  • Responsibilities of Co-op Coordinators or SEVIS Contacts
  • Common Pitfalls
  • Consequences of Unauthorized Employment
  • FAQ’s
  • Enrollment Requirements

If you are interested in getting trained please contact c.chapman@northeastern.edu to set up a time.

Please note that this approval is separate from the general SEVIS Contact training that OGS has. Even if you are an approved SEVIS contact – you may not have CPT approval authorization.

What is Curricular Practical Training?

  • CPT is a benefit given to eligible F-1 students to authorize off-campus practical training physically located anywhere in the US as required by a student’s curriculum or any co-op experience.
  • CPT can be done either full-time or part-time. Full-time is defined as more than 20 hours per week, and part-time is defined as 20 hours per week or less.
  • CPT is employer, location, full- or part-time, and date specific. The employer’s name and address and the precise start and end dates must be authorized by the OGS in advance in SEVIS.
  • CPT authorization must be obtained for each and every co-op, internship, practicum, clinical and corporate residency, or any other experiential training whether on or off-campus before any work or training is permitted to start.
  • There is a general exception for full-time enrolled students engaging in general on-campus employment for a maximum of 20 hours per week during an academic term and if not otherwise approved for CPT experiential opportunity.
  • CPT can be either paid or unpaid. All off-campus opportunities, even if unpaid, still require OGS authorization in advance. Retroactive authorization is not permitted.
  • Students cannot start employment prior to obtaining CPT authorization from the OGS. Working for even one day outside of the dates authorized by the OGS is a violation of F-1 student status.

CPT Eligibility Checklist for Advisors

Students applying for CPT must meet ALL of the requirements listed below: 
  1. The student is in F-1 visa status.
  2. The student is currently in good academic standing.
  3. They have completed one full-time academic year before the start of their CPT.
    • One full-time academic year is defined as two semesters of three quarters that meet minimum full-time F-1 standards.
    • Full-time F-1 means:
      • Graduate Students: 8 credits (at least 4 of which are taken on-ground) per term.
      • Undergraduate Students: 12 credits (at least 9 of which are taken on-ground) per term.
  4. The work or off-campus activity is related to their major program of study.
  5. The student is not engaging in the work or activity for the sole purpose of earning money or work experience – there is an academic need for them to engage.
  6. The student will be working at least half of the term
    • Half of the term is calculated by counting the days from the first day of classes in the term and the last day of finals for the term then dividing that number by 2. The student must be working at least this many days in the term cumulatively not consecutively.
  7. The student is/will be enrolled in co-op OR is enrolled in a course that meets all of the following requirements:
    1. The course is required for the student to graduate (satisfied a graduation requirement).
    2. The course requires that all students enrolled in the course engage off-campus.
  8. The student is/will be enrolled in co-op OR a course that meets above stated requirements for the entire period they are requesting CPT.
    1. Students are not eligible to have CPT authorization during terms in which they are not enrolled in a co-op or course that meets above stated requirements.
  9. If the student is requesting CPT in their final semester then they meet below requirements:
    • The course requiring the student to engage is REQUIRED for them to graduate OR they are concurrently enrolled a course that is a requirement for the to graduate.
    • Students may not engage in only co-op in their final semester unless it is a requirement for them to graduate.

Selecting Dates for CPT Authorization

The image below can be used to help determine what dates can be selected based off of the semester that students will be enrolled. Please note that each semester starts with a white line that represents the first day of classes and ends with a white line that represents the last day of finals. The short spaces in between the terms represent either winter break or the few days that exist between the end of finals for one term and the start of classes for the next term.

How CPT affects OPT

  • Please note there is no limit to the authorized period of CPT, if required by the academic program. However, if students go over 364 days of full-time CPT, this will trigger the loss of the Post-OPT benefit for that degree level. OGS recommends that students do not use 364 days to prevent accidentally going over. OGS recommends that students use no more than 357 days of full-time CPT.
  • Part-time CPT (20 hours per week or less) does not count towards the 364-day limit.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to keep track of how much CPT time has been used per degree level. Students may use past I-20 forms to keep track of CPT time used. Students can also use the CPT Authorization History eform if they would like all exact periods of authorization that they’ve used.

The co-op coordinators listed below have been approved by OGS to sign off on all CPT requests for co-op courses. Any co-op coordinator that would like to be added to the list should contact Casey Chapman at OGS. Please see the Approval Process Tab under Information for Advisors and Co-op Coordinators for more information.
