Graduate programs at HU are designed for working professionals focused on career advancements who can apply what is learned back to their workplace. To integrate professional work experience into all phases of the Graduate degree programs, all students must submit an Academic Work Placement Form or the Waiver of Academic Work Placement Form. An F1 student seeking Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization, must have an approved Academic Work Placement Form from Records and Registration prior to requesting CPT authorization from the International Student Office (ISO). Students will be required to follow this new process effective December 10, 2021. 

 

How do I know which form to submit?

  • Complete the Academic Work Placement Form if you have a current or active work placement. 
  • Complete the Waiver of Academic Work Placement Form if you do not have a work placement.

What if I am on an F1 Visa ?

Students on F1 Status must have work authorization for employment in the United States. Students need CPT authorized on their I-20 before they can begin to work. For more information about CPT Work Authorization, click HERE.

  • If you are a student on an F1 Status seeking CPT authorization, you must submit your approved Academic Work Placement Form to ISO for CPT authorization approval HERE
  • If you are a student on an F1 Status and are not seeking CPT authorization, you must submit the Waiver of Academic Work Placement Form to Records and Registration. Once the waiver is approved by Records and Registration, no additional follow-up with ISO is required.

For any questions regarding Academic Work Placement, please submit a ticket to the Records and Registration Student Portal.
