If you have students on CPT who need to “extend” their internships, they must submit a new CPT Request in MyISSS. The new request allows the Terra Dotta software to do its job and we can process the extension as a new CPT authorization. (Ultimately, it saves us time and keeps a better immigration record for the student.)

The CPT Update Form in MyISSS has three purposes:

  • Cancel CPT
  • Shorten CPT
  • Change Credit for CPT

The Changing Credit for CPT is the most common. PLEASE advise students to use the form to update credits rather than emailing As I’m sure you’re all experiencing, the UW email system is an ocean of unresponded-to yet important information requests. If we can point the students to the correct form early, we’re all in better shape long term.
