1 Student Guide to Curricular Pract ical Training (CPT) & Co-op Presented by Office of Internationa l Services and Cooperative Education The Office of International Services and Cooperative E ducation work together to provide F-1 international students the opportunity to pursue off-campus practical training during their academic career at NCSU. All international students wishing to engage in off campus trai ning, (including internship, Co -op, paid research, etc.) must complete the application process for both CPT and Co-op before beginning work. What is Curricular Practical

Training (CPT)? CPT is a type of employment authorizat ion for students in F-1 status who wish or need to engage in off-campus employment in their field of study when it is a required component of their curricu lum, is integral to their thesis or dissertation research (e.g., collecting data or testing hypot heses in a real world indust ry environment) or part of a cooperative education program in their field of study. What is Cooperative Education (Co-op)? Cooperative Education is an opportunity for NCSU students to participate in an opti onal program that integrates academic study with

related job experience. It pr ovides the chance to develop career re lated skills while building professional competence and interpersonal skills in a professional work environment. Office of International Services NC State Co-op Office 320 Daniels Hall, Box 7222 2100 Pullen Hall (phone) 919.515.2961 (fax) 919.515.1402 (phone) 919.515.2300 (fax) 919.515.7444 OIS@ncsu.edu www.ncsu.edu/ois http://www.ncsu.edu/co-op_ed OIS Information about CPT CPT Eligibility Requirements and Regulations Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is a type of empl oyment authorization for students in F-1 status who

wish or need to engage in off-campus employment in their field of study when it is a required component of their curriculum, is in tegral to their thesis or disserta tion research (e.g., collecting data or testing hypotheses in a real world industry environmen t) or part of a co-operative education program in their field of study. Advisors at the Office of Inter national Services (OIS) at NC State are responsible for either authorizing CPT (or recommending Optional Pr actical Training) for F-1 students if they are statutorily eligible and if the employment is app ropriate. We are committed to

facilitating such employment when it is possible and are equally comm itted to upholding both the integrity of academic programs at NC State and regulatory compliance. CP T is authorized by OIS only in conjunction with Co-op approval (and subsequent Co -op registration) along with a re commendation from the students academic advisor. CPT is authorized on a semest er-by-semester basis and any extensions require reapplication and a summary report of the preceding CPT experience. It is im portant for students to remember that CPT is a benefit of the F-1 visa status, not a right . F-1 students

who engage in unauthorized employment will be considered to be out of status and ineligib le for any nonimmigrant benefits. What is the difference between CPT and OPT? Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a benefit that allows F-1 students to engage in off-campus employment directly related to t heir major field of study - either before or after completion of studies for the purpose of gaining real -world experience. The major difference between OPT and CPT is whether or not the "employment" is an integral co mponent of the student's current academic program or part of a co-op experience .

Employment that does not meet all CPT requirements may still be possible with OPT. Students who wish to work off cam pus, but where the employment is not eligible for Co-op or if there is a prohibition about freely discu ssing the Co-op activities with the academic advisor, should apply for OPT at least 3 months before the proposed employment begin date. Pre-completion OPT time is deducted from ones total period, but OPT does not have the same standard of proof regarding the integral relationship to ones academic program. Note: If a student has engaged in more than 12 months of full-time CPT

during his/her F- 1 career, the student becomes ineligible for any OPT.

2 Requirements Students must attend the Co-op/CPT inform ation session (held by OIS and Co-op) Students must be matriculated into a deg ree program at NC State University Students must meet the minimum GPA requirement s for Co-op participation (minimum GPA 3.0 for graduate students and 2.5 fo r undergraduate students) Students must have been enrolled for at least one aca demic year and be in lawful F-1 status before becoming eligible for CPT in his/her field of study Students must obtain a recommendation

from the academic department Students must be registered for a COP course. CPT positions must be temporary intern/Co-op positi ons in the students field of study and be directly related to their current academic pr ogram (plan of work/research/thesis) Employment must not interfere with or delay the completion of academic program Prior to approval of full-time summer CPT stude nt must register/enroll for the subsequent fall semester Students must have completed a minimum of at leas t ONE semester in their curriculum (department) at NC State before being authorized for CPT CPT employment must

be authorized by OIS th rough the issuance of a new I-20 BEFORE the student can begin off-campus employment Employment is employer/position/site/duty specific - for a specific company, between specific dates, at a particular location, and specified as part-time or fu ll-time employment. CPT students MUST not be prevented from discussi ng their Co-op activities with their academic advisor because of a companys non-disclosure agreement CPT is revoked or cancelled if the student violat es his or her status, abandons his or her program, completes his or her program, changes nonimmi grant visa

status, is suspended or on academic warning/probation, etc. No changes may be m ade to the CPT authorization without written pre- authorization from both OIS and the Co-op office. Limits CPT may either be full-time or part- time (part-time Co-ops are limited to 20 hours of Co-op employment maximum per week AND full-time course registration). OIS defers to the academic department to provide the justification of how the proposed employment is an import ant or integral part of the students degree program. - Full-time CPT during the fall or spring semesters is only possible if the practical

training is a requirement of the students degree program or an integral part of the students thesis or dissertation. - Part-time CPT during the fall or spring semesters is possible with the recommendation from the academic advisor that the Co-op experience will supplement the students full-time course load. - International students at NC State are limited to a combined total of 20 hours of employment during the academic year (inclusive of on-campus and any CPT). Students may be eligible for employment beyond 20 hours per week under CPT during the academic year if the CPT is justified

because it is a requirement of the academic program or integral to the students thesis or dissertation. CPT authorization is only possible with a recommendati on from the academic advisor/DGP and confirmation that the practical training will not del ay the students degree completion. CPT authorizations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If the academic advisor is not able to provide the recommendation, the student will need to apply for a different employment authorization, such as pre-completion OPT. Students who wish to engage in off-campus employment late in their program or after

defending a thesis/dissertation should apply fo r Optional Practical Training. If a summer term is students final term of enrollment required to satisfy program requirements, then summer is not considered a vacation term and full-time CPT will likely not be permitted. If a student is not eligible for CPT, OPT may be an alternative and appropriate type of employment elig ibility. USCIS processing times vary so applications should be submitted with sufficient time before the proposed beginning date of employment. OPT may not begin until a valid Employment Authorization Document is in hand.

***Do not assume that a CPT approved for a summer session will automatically be approved for the fall semester (or that a fall CPT will automatically be approved for the following sp ring semester.) Each semester of CPT is a separate authorization which requires a new application. Renewals or extensions (including issuance of a new I-20) must be completed before continuing to work beyond t he authorized dates on the I-20.
