Following to Pauline question about CPT, does AAU have any network with company around bay area that could provide CPT

Xiaodi Chen

Does international students can apply for financial aid?
Laksamana Riadi
01:01:51
How tight should the job be related to our major? (IE can an advertising major work as graphic designer)

01:02:02
@Xiadi as far as I know, financial aid is for domestic students
Polina Vashchenko
01:02:15

Is there a way to know if your program qualifies for STEM OPT?
Cherry Cha

Cherry Cha
01:04:21
@Michelle we have 15 majors for STEM, please find more info from our website

01:04:51
@Michelle https://my.academyart.edu/students/my-academy/student-resources/international-student-resources#emp-auth
Laksamana Riadi
01:05:06
should we declare our major in AAU, or our major is applied automatically when we enrolled in AAU
Michelle Strachan
01:05:10
Thank you Cherry!
Cherry Cha
01:06:06
@Laksamana could you be more specific? what do you mean by "declare"?
Xiaodi Chen
01:08:41
Does international students can apply for financial aid?
Laksamana Riadi
01:09:00
I guess after 1 year when we meet all the qualified requirement for CPT, if we only took basic classes how do we determine what our major is?
Cherry Cha
01:09:46
@Xiaodi Financial aid is most likely for domestic students. You may find more for details
