Ucf International Agreements

UCF Global processes the checklist of visa documents for each international applicant. International applicants face additional challenges and need sufficient time to obtain time to obtain their visa. It is therefore extremely important to submit these applicants to authorization recommendations as soon as their files are completed and before the international decision-making period expires. The College of Graduate Studies offers free transcription assessments that offer all international candidates the equivalency of foreign education for all of our doctoral programs and master`s degrees that require ERM (except for master`s candidates at the College of Business Administration and The Rosen College of Hospitality Management). Update your bookmarks! The website of international agreements has been changed to global.ucf.edu/agreements. J-1 students subject to the two-year residency requirement are not entitled to a change of status in the United States, with the exception of an A visa (diplomatic or government) or a G visa (international organizations). UCF Global actively recruits international students to bring diversity and international recognition to the campus. You will find the best recruitment tool abroad is to develop a systematic feeder program by developing relationships with universities, organizations and international students. Faculty members are most effective in developing these relationships and are therefore encouraged to participate in recruitment activities and enter into agreements with universities when travelling abroad. Recruitment activities may include presentations, meetings with potential candidates and links between students/institutions abroad and the UCF. Faculty members are also encouraged to provide information on UCF Global Recruiters programs to help the recruitment team promote available UCF graduates. UCF Global is able to support faculties by providing resources, recruiting materials and providing information on the creation of agreements with institutions abroad. Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is a temporary work permit granted to F-1 students in the curriculum in order to gain practical experience directly related to their field of study.

The CPT is defined as 8 CFR 214.2 (f) (10) (i) as “alternative work/study, internships, co-op training or any other type of necessary internships or internships offered by promotional employers through cooperation agreements with the school” and may be admitted to training that is an integral part of an established program. The CPT authorization must first be established by a UCF Global Immigration Advisor and approved before the students begin employment.
