jonostocker replied to Anup Amin's topic in Student VisasIt depends upon the paperwork sent to USCIS in defence of the day 1 CPT requirement.
You can not attend the orientation on May 19th. Your visa will cancel if the government catch you accidentally. The legally working period should on your I-20 that signed by your advisor or international student service center's employee. That's your legally working schedule for the summer internship(CPT). Period. Good luck. You should ask the employer to delay your orientation significant your problems. Find some good internship jobs at job search sites or job portals for international students like OPTnation if you are finding for benefits for CPT internships? OPTnation has shared a blog regarding the overview/benefits for CPT Internship for International Students which will solve the misconception of many students.
