Some majors at CWU require that students do an internship. This is called curricular practical training (CPT) by immigration. CPT must be required as part of the CWU degree requirement. Usually, internships are required after you have completed your first year of study. For most situations, you can participate in an internship only after you have been in lawful immigration status and have been a full time student for at least nine months. Most internships are off-campus. Some may be paid and some may not be paid. You can even do an internship in your home country.
