Hi , I am an In-state resident in US and my status currently is L2 EAD, but from Oct. 1 it will change to H4 . I have already done my MBA from India , so what are the courses that I can pursue in order to be eligible for OPT . Do certification /short term courses also give OPT ?
To get CPT you need to be enrolled full time in a program ( Online courses are not allowed.)
You heed to be on F1 Visa.
You have to finish atleast two semesters to be eligible for CPT ( which comes to 9 months)
The CPT needs to be in the feild of your study.
Colleges offering CPT from first day are fake colleges - It has resulted in deportation of students ( search Tri-valley scam)
Certification and short term courses do not give CPT/OPT.
