Maintenance F1 Status - CPT related RFE.

Recommended Posts

Hi Team,

Could you please suggest regarding the below mentioned "Maintenance F1 Status - CPT related RFE".

1)Documentary evidence to show that immediate participation in CPT was required for the Beneficiary’s studies

2)Evidence that the Beneficiary’s CPT is directly related to his major area of study.

Thank you.

If you have you ask then it seems you were abusing CPT. CPT is only for work as integral part of the curriculum.

Care to tell us which university you were attending?

You would have to work with your employer and their attorneys to figure out what documentation is required w.r.t your case and respond to the RFE. In general 1) should be explained by the letter from your school that  CPT was a required component for the program that you attended. And 2 would be explained by the letters from your employer and or school that your CPT work was related to your area of study. For example: You did MBA and your major was finance and your MBA program required you to have a onsite training or learning experience at an employer in finance field or your work was related to finance. 

CPT rules were always like that , however due to practical training abuse USCIS is hell bent on issuing RFE's on any change or extension of status applications.
