There are two types of training available to international students:

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT)

Students who have been enrolled at Wilson on a full-time basis for at least nine (9) consecutive months are eligible to apply for CPT and OPT.  Please be aware that CPT/OPT is a privilege and not a right!
  • CPT is required or an integral part of your curriculum in order to graduate.
  • OPT is recommended by your major but not required.

All internships must be related to your major and in your field.  For example, an equestrian studies student cannot work at a bank even if it is a great job offer at the bank.
