9. What is the difference between CPT (Curricular Practical Training) and OPT (Optional Practical Training)? CPT employment is authorized while a student is completing degree coursework. In our MSCS program, full-time CPT employment may be for 2-3 years. OPT is issued for an F-1 student visa holder after completing all coursework in the MSCS program. The initial length of OPT is 12 months. Additionally, a 24-month STEM OPT extension is available for STEM degrees (such as Computer Science). About 70% of our F-1 MSCS students change from CPT to OPT after 12 months of CPT. This results in a total of 4 years of employment from our university's sponsorship (1 year under CPT and 3 years under OPT). See details at: http://www.ice.gov/sevis/practical-training/
