International Students

We understand the unique challenges that international students face when it comes to working outside of one's home country. While our team strives to find and build valuable partnerships with employers that offer meaningful hands-on learning experiences that suit our diverse student body, there are federal immigration guidelines that international students and The Career Development Center must adhere to.

IMPORTANT: NEW INTERNSHIP CHECKLIST!

PLEASE REVIEW THIS FORM (see right column).

 MOVING FORWARD, STUDENTS SEEKING TO REGISTER FOR INTERNSHIP ACADEMIC CREDIT, WILL NEED TO SUBMIT THE NEWLY REVISED CHECKLIST TO THEIR CDC ADVISOR AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT REGISTERING FOR AN INTERNSHIP REQUIRES AN APPOINTMENT. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO “DROP OFF” FORMS.

PLAN AHEAD WHEN SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT.

SUMMER 2018 DEADLINE: FRIDAY MAY 18, 2018

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Your visa status determines if you can work in the U.S. and in what types of situations.

  • Students on an F-1 VISA (Student Status) may be eligible to participate in CURRICULAR PRACTICAL TRAINING (CPT) which allows students to work off-campus via internships or co-ops that give them practical training in their major field of study

  • We can assist those with J-1 VISA (Exchange Visitor Status) with career advising and job search ONLY when they have received approval to work from OISS.

  • There are academic requirements that every student must meet in addition to immigration compliance.
