Internships: Information for International Students

If you are on a F-1 visa, you are eligible to work under Curricular Practical Training (CPT) after you have completed two full terms of study. If you are a transfer student or have completed another degree from a U.S. institution other than Illinois Tech, you must complete at least 9 credit hours at Illinois Tech before participating in CPT. Students are required to complete the CPT online training on Blackboard (under Organization) before applying for CPT.  

Review the Internship Authorization Packet for Master's students or Ph.D. and undergraduate students and visit the International Center website for additional information.

Internships

An internship is a one-semester employment commitment with one employer. Internships can be for-credit or non-credit. For-credit internships can either be part time (20 hours or less) or full time (more than 20 hours) as long as students register for them before the add-drop deadline. Non-credit internships can only be part-time (20 hours or less). Please note: you have to be enrolled in full-time academic coursework by the add/drop date to maintain your F-1 status. You are required to register for at least one in-person course each semester if you would like to participate in for-credit internships and ensure that you meet the full time enrollment requirements.

All students who participate in an internship are required to submit the Employer Evaluation Form and the Student Evaluation Form at the end of each internship term.
