International students on F-1 visa status must receive CPT authorization for off-campus internships and for on-campus internships over twenty hours per week.  CPT status is only granted if an internship site has been approved by the CIS Department and all mandatory coursework has been successfully completed. International students must complete two traditional semesters (fall/spring) before they are allowed to apply for CPT status.

Students must register for and complete an internship during the semester they are on CPT.
