When choosing Day 1 CPT universities with a budget focus, it's essential to consider three key elements that greatly affect your program's total cost: Tuition, Location, and Campus Visit Frequency.

However, if your primary concern is finding the Day 1 CPT universities with the lowest tuition costs, here's the information you need.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PROGRAM

When selecting Day 1 CPT programs, also known as Day 1 CPT courses, it's important to adhere to three main principles.

  1. The Day 1 CPT Program you choose should significantly differ from your previous degree.
  2. It should align closely with your Job Description (JD).
  3. The ideal Day 1 CPT Program should be a level higher than your last degree

Day 1 CPT universities, unlike traditional institutions, provide more frequent enrollment opportunities throughout the year, specifically catering to the needs of post-OPT students. 

For individuals facing expired OPT or visa status challenges, enrolling in a Day 1 CPT university is a strategic option for reinstating their status.
