Employment Authorization for F-1 and J-1 Students: An Overview

Employment Authorization for F-1 and J-1 Students: An Overview

Would you like to learn more about the different kinds of employment authorization for F-1 and J-1 students, for employment either before or immediately after graduation? Or maybe you have heard about “OPT”, “CPT”, or “AT”, but want to know more about the differences between them and their advantages and disadvantages.

At this workshop, we will provide an overview of employment authorization options and authorization procedures for F-1 students such as Curricular Practical Training, Optional Practical Training, and employment under the sponsorship of certain recognized international organizations; and will also explain the Academic Training employment authorization for J-1 students. After attending this workshop, you will understand what kind of employment authorization is most appropriate for you, and will know what you need to do next if you decide to apply for one of these “work permits.”

This workshop is co-sponsored by Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and the International Center.
