Course/Program Requirements

Additional Info for International Students

International students must ensure that the internship is first approved for Curricular Practical Training (CPT). This process starts with approval from the student's academic advisor. The internship must be deemed, by their advisor, to be "integral to the established curriculum" of the student's degree program and major. The advisor must indicate "pre-approval" of this information, in writing, to the International Student and Scholar Services office (ISSS) in 210 Talbert Hall utilizing the first page of this specific, yellow colored, Curricular Practical Training Recommendation form (PDF (22KB)). Upon agreement by the ISSS office (and after securing the internship) the second page of the form must then be completed by Career Services. The completed two-page form must then be submitted to the International Student and Scholar Services office (210 Talbert Hall) at least 5-7 business days prior to the start of the internship.
