Unauthorized experiential activity

Students cannot start experiential activities outside the classroom without first obtaining CPT authorization from OGS. Unauthorized experiential activity where CPT is required and not obtained will place the student in serious violation of their F-1 status and may result in their SEVIS record termination.

Students must contact OGS for an appointment if they have questions about what qualifies as unauthorized activity, or  if they believe they have engaged in unauthorized experiential activities where CPT is required. Please call our office at 617-373-2310 to schedule an appointment.
