F-1 student status allows international students to attend a United States college or university and allows in certain circumstances to obtain curricular practical training (CPT) or optional practical training (OPT/STEM OPT). Case Western Reserve University regularly hires people on F1 status, both sponsored by Case Western Reserve University and those sponsored by other educational institutions.
Case Western Reserve University students are required to work with the CWRU International Student Services (ISS) Department on matters regarding their I-20s, CPT and OPT/STEM OPT eligibility. For more information on CPT and OPT, please refer to the CWRU ISS website.
I-983 Forms must be completed by the hiring department and the student’s sponsoring institution. IHRS is able to provide common institutional information required in the I-983 form, but cannot complete the form on the department’s or student’s behalf.
