This Merrimack-specific page covers the basic regulations and requirements for both Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT). Please note that there are some requirements that must be discussed with the Office of International Student Support, your academic advisor and department, and the O’Brien Center for Career Development. If you are interested in using your CPT and OPT, please start the conversations with your academic and career advisors early.
