You can visit our Program Costs and Details Page to see which certificate programs support F-1 status and OPT. You’ll also find the estimated cost and units for each program.

To qualify for OPT, international students must study for a minimum of 3 consecutive quarters (approximately 8 - 9 months) and enroll in a minimum of 12 units each quarter. Students may take less than 12 units in their final (usually 3rd) quarter to complete a certificate with the International Student Advisor's approval.
