We are able to help students apply for schools with flexible hours and multiple start dates throughout the year. Students should choose a school that is the most suitable for their own CPT start date. In addition, it is important to note that to receive CPT, students must be in full attendance of class. Some schools have flexible class schedules where students do not need to attend class every week. There are schools that allow students to choose classes on weekends. Students must make arrangements to attend their classes.
To start looking at CPT school options, students must be sure of their OPT expiration date. When OPT ends, students have a 60 day grace period that allows them to legally stay in the United States, but are ineligible to work. Therefore, it is recommended that students who have a job offer should transfer their I-20 to the new school before their OPT expires so they can seamlessly switch to CPT and begin their internship. As a reminder, students should apply for a school three months in advance before their OPT experiences in order to successfully be approved of CPT in a timely manner. Individual schools have specific deadlines and requirements.
