Grad FAQ - Can International Students participate in the Graduate Co-op Program?

es!  The Graduate Co-op Program is a great tool for further development of your career skills through experiential education. Registration of your internship through the Graduate Co-op Program qualifies your off-campus work assignment as a Curricular Practical Training (CPT) experience; this allows you to postpone using your limited Optional Practical Training (OPT) until after graduation.  A graduate co-op work assignment using CPT may be approved for any semester prior to your graduation: fall, spring or summer.
