Shorten Your Authorized CPT Dates
If you need to shorten the dates of your CPT authorization, you must email ISS at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and confirmation of the new dates from your employer and academic/faculty/career advisor. It is not possible to change your CPT dates after your CPT authorization has ended.
Extend Your Authorized CPT Dates
If you need to extend the dates of your CPT authorization, it is your responsibility to contact ISS. In most cases, course enrollment must first be verified before CPT authorization can be granted. If the CPT experience will extend beyond the semester for which you have been authorized, you may request an extension.
In order to continue to process CPT extensions remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic during April 2020, we have updated the process to ensure immigration compliance.
To request a CPT extension, students must submit a CPT request form in Terra Dotta. This new form will require an advisor to verify that the CPT request is connected to program requirements or coursework and is connected to their academic plan.
