How We Support International Students
We understand that international students navigate many transitions when studying in the United States, and understanding U.S. academic and work culture is just one of many new things to learn. We are here to be a resource in helping international students understand and navigate available career and experiential learning opportunities, and we provide access to internships and jobs that accept OPT, CPT, and H1-B visa holders through Handshake.

Practical Training Resources
If you are an F-visa student, you have the option of training in the United States by engaging in practical training during your program or after it ends. There are two types of practical training available for F-1 students: curricular practical training (CPT) and optional practical training (OPT). Learn more about eligibility requirements, timelines, and policies.
