ONLY A FEW UNIVERSITIES allow full-time paid
employment in the 1st semester of study!!
U.S. Immigration law allows
graduate universities to offer full-time paid employment during the same
time that Master's students are taking their teacher courses for recertification. This
program, known as Curricular Practical Training (CPT), allows
international students to earn regular wages working for American
companies in employment which is related to their major. But, only a
handful of universities offer such an opportunity.
For those few universities offering full-time CPT
employment for international students, wages begin at $6.00 to $13.00 per
hour for entry level jobs, but are higher for those with more experience
and employment skills. The university program we will seek to find for
you will allow you to work full-time (40 hours per week) beginning from
your first semester.
How can I work full-time and also attend classes?
The universities which allow full time CPT employment offer their
classes during the day, on week-ends and at night to accommodate the
student's work schedule. The format of these CPT universities is
purposely designed so there is little or no conflict between work and
