What is Curricular Practical Training (CPT)?
Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is an opportunity for international students to obtain work experience in their field of study. These experiences can be internships, research, or cooperative education programs.
If you are being paid in anyway for these activities you MUST apply for CPT.
When can you start?
Start the process as soon as you become interested! Keep in mind that you must be lawfully enrolled on a full-time basis for at least one full academic year (Fall and Spring) at Robert Morris University before you can start the CPT process. (An exception exists for graduate students whose programs require immediate curricular training).
You will need to search for, find, and be hired for the job before you register for CPT. The Career Center can help you with that.
Once you get the job, you will need to register for the CPT before you start working.
