Q: Can I work while I am studying at OU?

A: As an F-1 non-degree seeking student (at least for the first year, the student completes credits at OU that transfer back to PSUT) the student would not be eligible for what is called Curricular Practical Training (CPT) or the authorization to work off-campus in your field of study. You could do something non-paid that is more informal, like a job shadow at a company or something like that. Once you transition to the master's program, you would need to be in F-1 status for two semesters to be eligible to be authorized for (CPT). So this would be possible as part of a master's program at OU.

With respect to full-time status, 12 credits is full-time at the undergraduate level and 8 is full-time at the master's level:

In a degree-seeking program, you can be less than full time in only a few circumstances, such as having issues with English in your first semester, health/medical, and in your last semester if you are getting the balance of credits for your degree program.

In a non-degree situation, it would be a stretch for OU to authorize less than full time in that case. However,  it would be no problem once you have transitioned to the master's, you could for example only have a few credits in your last semester and be authorized for a part-time or a full-time CPT.

In other words, If you have be in F1 status for 8 months by the time you have started the master's program, you would be eligible for part-time CPT (off campus) as long as you are registered full time.   If you come to OU for your last undergraduate year in F1 status, it will count toward that 8 months.


Q: What about the Graduation Project? How can I take it abroad?"

A: You can take the following Capstone class: MGT 4350 Management Strategies and Policies, which is the capstone general education for business students.
