Our unique curriculum requires that, each semester, students connect learning to practice. For this reason, it is possible that students awarded the I-20 to attend Metropolitan College of New York may become eligible to work under very specific guidelines determined by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services once they are enrolled. Our philosophy of Purpose Centered Education means you learn by doing. The majority of our programs allow students to work part-time while pursuing their studies full time. Under USCIS guidelines, MCNY has the authority to grant students Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT) after students meet the eligibility requirements. The College’s Career Service Office assists students in highlighting internship, CPT and OPT opportunities throughout each semester.
