Day 1 CPT Policy at CIAM

CIAM authorizes Curricular Practical Training (CPT) for international students enrolled in an Experiential Internship Course (INT501 or INT599). CPT employment is defined as “alternative work/study, internship, cooperative education, or any other type of required internship or practicum that is offered by sponsoring employers through cooperative agreements with the school.” To qualify, the work experience must be related to the student’s degree. Students can take a maximum of one INT course per term. These courses are zero unit courses and do not count towards the Full-Time Student requirement. CPT authorizations are not automatically renewed each term and students must apply or re-apply every term.

To qualify for CPT:

  • Be in valid F-1 immigration status for at least 1 year (International Student who are on a new I-20 have to wait until their 3rd term to take INT501).

  • Be registered for two classes (full-time) at CIAM with good academic standing.

  • Be enrolled in Experiential Internship course (INT501 or INT599).
