F1 Student Visa, CPT, OPT, STEM Program

Hybrid Degrees Available for International Students

STEM programs allow you to obtain an F1 Student Visa, acquire a Social Security Number (SSN), and legally work during your studies using CPT throughout the program. After graduation, you can work for one year under the OPT permit and extend it for another two years with the STEM extension. For example, if you are applying for a Master’s degree, you have the opportunity to study for two years and legally work in the U.S. for a total of five years.

Key Information for International Students

Hybrid STEM Degree (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)

A hybrid degree is a flexible approach that combines online and in-person instruction. You get to complete most of the coursework at your preferred pace online while attending in-person sessions as necessary.

F1 Student Visa and Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

The F-1 Student Visa is a US visa that allows you to study in the US and gain experience as an international student. CPT is a type of work authorization that will enable you to apply for off-campus employment with a job offer the school approves. Students can work up to 20 hours per week (part-time CPT) or more than 20 hours per week (full-time CPT) in a field related to their studies. This opportunity helps students earn money and improve their knowledge relevant to their field.

Social Security Number (SSN)

STEM programs allow you to obtain an SSN, which is a nine-digit identification number issued by the United States government to temporary (working) residents as an identification number to legally work and earn money in the United States. The SSN is crucial for reporting an individual’s wages to the government and determining eligibility for Social Security benefits.

Optional Practical Training (OPT)

OPT program allows you to work in your field of study for up to 12 months after completing your STEM program. STEM program students can apply for an additional 24-month extension, allowing up to 36 months of work authorization. OPT must be directly related to the student’s major area of study.

Work Permit

A work permit authorizes non-U.S. citizens to work legally in the United States for a specified period. According to United States Center of Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations, you are eligible to apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD), which you can receive within 90-150 days after application.
