Earn Money While Earning a Degree

The cost of tuition, books, health insurance, room and board, and transportation can be a huge hurdle for international students. Working while you study may be a great way to help meet your financial goals. FPU can authorize Curricular Practical Training (CPT) that gives international students authorization to gain employment training and work in paid internships positions.

Work Study Opportunities is open to both undergraduate and master students and includes

  • Part time or full time Employment for international students
  • Employment with on and off campus employers
  • "American" wages

However, students must be careful that they don’t use so much CPT that it takes away from their OPT.
