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.

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.
