frequently asked questions

Yes. The University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

If you are not able to finish your degree program by the end date noted on your I-20, you can request an extension of your program. The length of time allowed for an extension is based on course completion and the recommendation of your academic advisor.

An extension of your I-20 must be completed before the program end date indicated on your I-20. If your I-20 expires while you are still a student, you will be considered in violation of your status. Note that students are only eligible for two program extensions.

To request a program extension, send a written request for extension including an explanation of the need for a program extension. Requests should be sent to International Student Services.

The United States has very strict rules for international students who want to work during their studies. International students enrolled full time and in valid F-1 status may work on-campus for up to 20 hours per week during when classes are in session, and up to 40 hours per week when classes are not. Students in valid F-1 cannot be employed off campus without meeting eligibility requirements and obtaining official authorization. 

Immigration regulations limit an international student’s eligibility to accept employment off-campus. Students found working illegally are failing to maintain their F-1 student status and risk having their F-1 visa revoked. Off-campus employment is only allowed in the following circumstances:

Curricular Practical Training: Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is employment that trains you in your field of study and for which you fulfill academic credit or part of your degree requirement. CPT may be a paid or unpaid internship, cooperative education job, a practicum, or other experience that is related in your field of study. Students interested in doing a CPT must make an appointment with International Student Services to see if they are eligible.

Optional Practical Training: Optional Practical Training (OPT) is work authorization that will allow you to work in areas that are related to you major. A student must be enrolled for a full academic year to be eligible to apply for OPT. You can apply up to 90 days before your graduation and it is recommended that you apply at least 45 days before graduation to ensure timely processing. Students interested in doing OPT must make an appointment with International Student Services to see if they are eligible.

Severe Economic Hardship Employment: This benefit is available to students who have completed at least one semester and have proven a severe economic hardship caused by circumstances beyond his or her control that arose after obtaining F-1 status, and that on-campus employment opportunities are not available or are otherwise insufficient. Students must make an appointment with International Student Services to see if they are eligible.
