Frequently Asked Questions    
How can candidates work for 2 years on an F-1 visa under University authorization?

A graduate student with an F–1 visa may be authorized by the University's Designated School Official (DSO) to participate in a curricular practical training program that is an integral part of an established curriculum. Students enrolled in graduate studies that require immediate participation in curricular practical training may work full time for up to two years. More information
 
Can our company retain candidates for longer than 2 years?

Yes, your company can begin the process of applying for an H-1B work visa for the employee after the first year of CPT work under University authorization. This could enable the employee to work in the U.S. for an additional 6 years (3-year H-1B visa and a 3-year extension).
 
How much processing time is required before a candidate can start working?

All processing is handled by the University and can be completed within a few days of receiving the job offer.
