  • Alex Israel

    Feb 10| Lectures
    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Curricular Practical Training

CPT Overview

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is an off-campus employment option available to F-1 students when the training (i.e. internship or employment) is considered an integral part of the established curriculum and directly related to the student’s major. “Training” refers to paid or unpaid work/study experience, internships, or cooperative education.

 

Time

CPT can only be used during a student’s program of study.

CPT must be renewed each semester

CPT approved for part-time (20h or less per week) or full-time (20+ hours per week).  Full-time CPT granted for summer semester only.

  • Students who use 12 full months of full-time CPT become ineligible for OPT under US immigration law.
  • NOTE: if you work 6 months of full-time CPT you will not affect the 12 months of OPT
  • Use of part-time CPT does not affect OPT
  • Consider applying for pre-completion OPT if your degree program is not eligible for CPT

 

Eligibility

  • Must have an employment/training offer related to your major area of study
  • Students authorized for part time CPT (20 hours or less per week) must be enrolled in a minimum of 10 credits for graduates and 12 credits for undergraduates each semester they engage in CPT. Students authorized for full time CPT (more than 20 hours per week) must be enrolled in at least one credit hour each semester they engage in CPT.
  • Students who have completed their program requirements and are merely delaying graduation to make use of CPT are NOT eligible.
