My university only allows Part- Time CPT. How can I work Full time during Fall and Spring semester?

Hey I am a Graduate student and I am currently working as a summer intern.The company I work for wants me to extend my stay till December and work full-time for them, but my university only allows part time CPT during Fall and Spring. What is the best solution because its a great opportunity and I don't want to leave it.

If you're done with your coursework and are only enrolled for thesis hours you are eligible for fulltime CPT. however, the time you utilize here will be compensated with your OPT. If you still have coursework left, you'll not be eligible for fulltime CPT. If your university is not allowing fulltime CPT during the Fall and Spring semester and you are done with your coursework as stated earlier, you can apply for Pre-completion OPT...

does full time spring or fall CPT (less than 12 months )will make ineligible for OPT

that's not allowed actually. That's violation of F-1 rules
