International Students

International students must adhere to all standards for in-person instruction as they would for a semester on campus in Urbana-Champaign. For these students, a minimum of 9 credits must contain in-person instruction.

International students holding a F-1 Visa who plan to accept employment off-campus through a City Scholars internship must meet the requirements and adhere to the guidelines below: 

  • Completion of one academic year (2 consecutive semesters) of full-time study immediately prior to participation in the City Scholars program.
  • Students may not work more than 20 hours per week during their internship.
  • Students must have an approved CPT I-20 before starting their internship.
