CPT eligibility refers to the criteria students must meet to be eligible for Curricular Practical Training. CPT allows international students in the US on F-1 visas to gain work experience directly related to their field of study. To be eligible, students must have completed one academic year, maintain valid F-1 status, and have a job offer or internship that is an integral part of their curriculum. They must also receive authorization from their designated school official (DSO) and ensure the employment does not exceed 20 hours per week during regular semesters. CPT can provide valuable practical experience while maintaining student visa status.

RE: What are the different types of CPT?
There are three types of Curricular Practical Training (CPT): required, elective, and optional. Required CPT is an integral part of the curriculum and necessary for degree completion. Elective CPT is an optional course or internship related to your field of study. Optional CPT is available during academic breaks and does not need to be directly related to your major.
