Best Day 1 CPT Universities in the South

The availability of Day 1 CPT universities in the southern states is limited, though Texas stands out as a significant hub for international students. Our collaboration extends to Day 1 CPT universities in Texas, with DBU being particularly notable. However, DBU's tuition fees are relatively high, and its on-site attendance requirements exceed those of other Day 1 CPT institutions. This has led many students to consider Day 1 CPT universities in California or Arizona, especially those living closer to the West Coast. For those near Florida, Westcliff University and National Louis University are excellent options. For those willing to travel, consider Day 1 CPT universities in the Midwest, such as in Kansas. Utilize our Day 1 CPT map to find the nearest option. If the closest university does not offer the program you're interested in, reach out to our consultant for a personalized list of Day 1 CPT universities tailored to your interests and timeline.

* The Southern States include:  Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Floria, South Carolina, North Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia, D.C., Maryland, or Delaware
