Work Authorization

Support your job or internship search by learning about immigration regulations and work visas.  The Office of International Education (OIE) website provides information, forms and procedures you will need to be successful and in compliance during your time here at Marquette.

International students should understand CPT, OPT, and H1-B visa guidelines and processes well enough to explain them to a company representative.  For example, a student could share with an employer:  
“As an international student, I qualify for curricular practical training, which is also called CPT.  I could work in your internship by obtaining academic credit through the Business Career Center.  I would simply need to ask you to sign paperwork indicating that you were aware of my receiving credit.”

If you are interested in pursuing credit for an internship, especially for visa or CPT compliance, please review the options below. All CPT approvals need to be finalized before you may begin working for an off-campus employer.
