Academic training provides an opportunity to apply theoretical
knowledge obtained in an academic program to a practical work experience. This
employment opportunity must be directly related to your major field of study.
It may, in certain circumstances, be full or part time and may take place
anywhere in the United States. You may apply for academic training during your
vacation periods, during the academic year, or for when you complete your
studies. Academic training can be authorized by the International Student and
Scholar Services office upon the recommendation of your academic advisor or by your
J-1 program sponsor if not sponsored by USF.
In order to apply for Academic Training you will need to:
- Determine your eligibility for
Academic Training by talking with an ISSS advisor.
- Find employment or an Internship and
have it approved by your academic advisor
- Have your academic advisor complete
the ISSS Academic Training form.
- If you have any further questions
about this process you should make an appointment with an ISSS advisor.
