- In general, your employment may be authorized for the length of time necessary to complete the goals and objectives of the training, provided that the amount of time is approved by both your academic adviser and your Responsible Officer. It may not exceed the amount of time it took for you to complete your full course of study, or 18 months, whichever is shorter. If you receive a Ph.D., and are engaged in post-doctoral training, your academic training may last as long as 36 months (see an advisor at the IPS for detail)
- Part-time employment for "Academic Training" counts against the 18 or 36 months limit the same as full-time employment.
- Earning more than one degree does not increase your eligibility for Academic Training.
