If you are changing your employer

  1. Obtain a copy of your official offer letter on company letterhead that is signed by the prospective employer. A photocopy is acceptable. The letter should include the employer’s name, full address, dates of employment, and duties.

  2. Complete a CPT Form with your employer. 
    • Helpful Tips for completing the CPT Form:
      • Position Title and Position Description: The student's position title and description are to be entered on these lines to indicate direct relation between the job duties and program of study.
      • Start Date and End Date: The new dates of the CPT extension should be indicated on these lines.

  3. Submit the CPT application HERE.

  4. If you were previously employed with a different employer be sure to note your last official date of employment with the company in your request so that ISO can update it accordingly in SEVIS.
