  • Full time CPT in last sem & location constraint in university

    Hi DesiOPT team,

    I've been a regular follower of your facebook page. You guys are doing a wonderful job in sharing the complex immigration rules and helping fellow international students. Keep up the good work and hope you will continue doing it.

    Could you please help me with my below scenario.

    I'm in last semester (Fall 2014) with 3 credits left for which I'm doing a Masters project. I'm planning to work on Full time CPT through a consultancy. My DSO has agreed to my CPT application but said I've to find a job near my university for non-summer semester. When I dig deep, she said that technically, my employer has to be from a location near my university and they don't usually do micro management regarding in which location I actually work. She hinted me that my offer letter and payroll should be from a location near my university and rest all may not matter. But she also warned me that just in case if USCIS get to know that I'm working in a different state then I'd be in a problem.

    My professor has said that I can communicate through emails and complete the project. My chances of working with a client near my university are bleak. I'm really confused on how to go with this (since she spoke with a double tongue). My consultancy is assuring me that no problem would occur, but I'm skeptical.

    Could you please suggest me out of your experience hearing such scenarios or if anyone faced a similar situation.

    Thanks in advance !! It would be a great help.

          Things go skeptical sometimes as suggested u can ask your consultancy to run your payroll to your current address saying that you are working remotely, And as long as you have a good attendance and have a job fulfilled in the course curriculum showing that it helped your field of study you are good for USCIS.
