How to Apply

The ISSO CPT application is completely paperless for international students and their CPT advisors. Students should be sure to fill out the CORRECT CPT Application. Accidentally completing the wrong application will result in denial. This may cause a delay in start dates, so please be careful when selecting the right e-form request for you.

SELECT THE CORRECT E-FORM BASED ON THE CPT YOU ARE APPLYING FOR:

  1. Full-time Co-op Program Student: CPT Application for students accepted into the full-time Professional Co-op Program, or Graduate Master's Co-op Option in Engineering. Students will be required to upload the following documentation to the above CPT application e-form:
