Selecting a Day 1 CPT School by Location

Why Does Location Matter?

  • Importance of Geographical Proximity in Ensuring F1 Legitimacy
    Attending a Day 1 CPT school that is too far from where you live could trigger suspicions from USCIS, leading to additional scrutiny regarding your intent. They might question whether you really satisfy the onsite requirement of your school. The further scrutiny could result in a Request for Evidence (RFE) during your H1B visa application. Thus, selecting a Day 1 CPT university closer to your living place can ensure the legitimacy of your F1 status, reducing possible risks in future visa applications.
     
  • Reducing the Onsite Attendance Burden
    Many Day 1 CPT universities are strict about their onsite requirements. Failure to meet the onsite requirement can lead to immediate dismissal from the school. To lower the burden of attending onsite classes, you need to choose a school that is geographically convenient for you. Usually, a Day 1 CPT school near large cities would be a great option for students. Choosing a geographically convenient Day 1 CPT school may enable onsite classes in just a one-day trip. 
     
  • Check the universities on West Coast / East Coast / Midwest/ South

    We assist students in selecting Day1CPT universities within their preferred area, streamlining their search to focus on institutions that align with their educational and career objectives while adhering to USCIS regulations.
