  • Application of CPT i20

    Hello friends,
    I have received a co-op internship offer for my fall semester(3rd semester of M.S.). As this is my first job in US, I do not have a ssn. So, I have to apply for a new cpt-i20 and enroll for a 1.5 credit course (i.e internship credit) . But the problem is , this course requires a certain permission number, which is given by Department Advisor. The advisor has not yet received the Permission number from university for Fall 2014 semester. So I cannot start with the cpt-i20 application process.I had the following questions:
    a)Should I wait till cpt-I20 is ready, as my job starts in August
    b)Can I apply for SSN with my existing I20 and offer letter of company
    I am new to this group, kindly help me with these doubts.
    Thanks for your time and consideration.Awaiting Response

            You cannot work with out a valid CPT I20
            Regarding ssn please take your offer letter and current i20 along with your passport, bank statement and license. You will be able to apply for it. When I am doing on campus job I went to get ssn and I got it with all the above documents
