Combining Curricular Practical Training and Optional Practical Training

Curricular Practical Training and Optional Practical Training

If you work full-time for three months utilizing the Curricular Practical Training (CPT) program, you still can take advantage of a full 12 months of Optional Practical Training. Participation in Curricular Practical Training does not affect your eligibility for Optional Practical Training unless you work full-time under CPT for a total of 12 months, in which case you become ineligible for any OPT.
