美国带薪留学

赴美带薪留学
(Curricular Practical Training项目)

一、项目介绍:
带薪留学项目是指参加项目的学生到美国攻读硕士学位的同时在美国工作,即边学习边工作。由美国校方安排到预定的公司工作,公司将根据学生在学校所学的专业和研究生所攻读的方向等情况安排适当实习工作,其工资标准不低于本地州政府规定的最低的工资标准。学生通过工作获得的薪酬一般可以支付学校的学费及生活费用。这个项目最大的特点是边工作边学习,相对于常规留学不需要很多留学费用。学生留学期间必须工作,不工作是非法的。

二、项目宗旨
为工薪阶层和经济条件一般的学生提供一个赴美国学习深造、工作及获得绿卡的难得机会。针对自愿赴美国学习工作获得绿卡的学生,帮助他们在较好的美国公司和企业工作,学到先进的学科知识并获得有价值的的工作经验,在英文作为母语的氛围中培养和掌握现代科学技能。
为提升学生在社会和职场的竞争力及未来发展生涯规划的需求,本机构特别设计了为中国本科学历学生赴美国带薪工作硕士研究生留学专案.
学生就读的学校均在中国教育部涉外监管信息网上及中国留学网等官方网站上所列的美国大学,所获得的学位可以得到国际认可、中国教育部留学服务中心对学位的认证。

三、培养目标
形势:随着中国经济的发展,家庭的经济能力强了,教育的水准高了,同时,社会对于求职者的要求也水涨船高了;同时中国经济的迅猛发展,需要与国际同步,国际化人才在中国未来发展中将不可获缺,所以,越来越多的人选择留学。
现状:现在留学生的目标更加明确,家庭的心理期望也更高。留学不仅是为获得一张文凭或是掌握一门外语,更不是为了打工挣钱,而是为了给学生以后的事业和生活打下坚实的基础,相比在国内读大学,留学就是为了获得完全不同的学习环境和生活经验,让学生未来的生活中拥有更强的竞争能力。
意义:环境决定人、环境影响人。美国CPT项目所提供的学校的教研设施设备比中国大学先进,教学水平也远远领先。国外的留学环境能够把留学生塑造成一个国际人,出色的外语将是最基础的交流工具,更重要的是在留学生活中学会理解异国的文化传统和思维方式,在真正的美国公司和企业获得有价值的工作经验,为取得美国绿卡奠定坚实的基础。
为了让学生努力掌握科学技术和专业知识,美国CPT项目提供的工作机会将提供给学生多彩的人生、丰富的阅历、稀有的见闻,带给学生的不仅是知识和修养,而是从工作和生活中形成的、发自内心的对于一切都能应付自如的自信,从而提高自身全方位的能力和素质,在今后的社会竞争中立于不败之地。这正是中国大学毕业生稍显不足的地方。

四、项目优势
学生在较1、好的美国公司和企业获得有价值工作经验的同时完成学业:学校保证在学生就读期间安排除了寒暑假以外不低于11个月的工作;
2、是中国本科毕业生前往美国留学工作取得绿卡的直通车。
(1)可获得合法工卡:学校将为学生办理合法工卡(政府批准的工作证),学生除了在就读期间学校安排的工作外,还可合法地自行在校外找工作;
(2)可快捷取得H-1B工作签证:在美国公司的工作经验为获得H-1B工作签证奠定了基础,由于参加CPT项目的学生毕业后比任何持有F-1签证的学生更容易找到工作,所以学生只需提供工作雇主的基本信息、雇主公司证明、雇用合同、学生的工卡、护照、I-20和I-94表、本科学历证书和成绩单、学生基本信息等材料,学生就可申请H-1B工作签证。
(3)申请绿卡:在取得H-1B工作签证后,可合法申请美国绿卡。
3、留学费用低:
(1)学生参加此项目所获得的薪资和美国当地本土人员的工资水平保持一致。所赚得的钱由学生持有并可用于他们自己或教育需求。每月薪金在1500-9000美金(有些计算机工程师每年薪水可达到10万美金),此工作收入足以支付学费;
(2)学生除了在就读期间学校安排的工作外,还可持工卡合法地自行找工作,收入不菲。
4、最便捷的美国留学途径:免托福成绩、GRE成绩、GMAT成绩。
5、签证率高:此项目在美使馆备案,签证率高。
6、名额配制:每个专业20个名额,是历年以来在中国招收带薪学习学生力度最大的一次。
7、可灵活转学:学生在所就读的大学就读一年后可申请转学。
8、退费:如签证不通过(可争取第二次签证),学校未录取全退。

常见问题:

Questions about CPT Employment(关于CPT岗位的问题)
Q: Will the university find an internship job for me? (学校会为我找一份实习工作吗?)
A: No, the university will not find employment for the students. However, because the internship is mandatory, the school's CPT Employment Counselor will assist the applicants in finding and applying for an employment position. The school and/or SPONSER associates will help the student in this endeavor by assisting with the preparation of a resume, introductions to companies looking for employees and showing students how to search for employment through the newspapers, the internet, job fairs or other placement services.(不,学校不会为学生找工作。然而,由于实习是必需要做的,学校的CPT工作指导老师将帮助申请人寻找并且申请一份工作。学校和/或项目主办方的有关人士将帮助学生准备简历,介绍有雇人需求的公司,以及教导学生通过报纸、网络,招聘会或其他实习工作服务机构找工作的方法。)
Q: What is the likelihood that I will find my internship employment?(我能找到什么样的实习岗位?)
A: New internship positions become available on a regular basis. However, the type of internship position and how long it takes you to obtain it will depend on your skills, your experience, your English ability and your personal ambition. (新的实习岗位是会定期出现的。然而,实习岗位的种类和实习多长时间方面就要取决于你的技能、你的经验、你的英语能力和个人的理想抱负。)
Q: How long will it take for me to obtain my internship employment?(我得花多长时间才能找到实习岗位?)
A: Most students will obtain employment in the first two months at the campus. For those with limited skills, it may take a much longer to find a suitable internship position. English ability is also a factor in how quickly a student can obtain his/her internship position. Legally students can not start the internship until they have 1)enrolled and paid for school, 2)started classes and 3) obtained the Social Security number. Getting the social security number takes about two to four weeks.(大部分学生能在入校的前两个月获得工作机会。对那些技能比较差的学生来说,就要花费更长的时间去找到合适的实习岗位啦。英语能力也是一名学生快速获得他/她的实习岗位的因素。法律上讲,学生直到,1)在学校注册和缴纳了学费,2)已经开始上课,3)获得社会保障号,才能开始实习。获得社会保障号需要2-4周的时间。)
Q. Will my internship job be arranged before I come to the U.S.?(我的实习工作可以在我来到美国之前就安排吗?)
A. It is very difficult to have a job arranged for students prior to their arrival due to the fact that employers almost always want to interview the candidates personally. However, the university has contacted with companies that will hire students for a temporary entry level job, so they can be employed as soon as possible. At some of the schools these entry level job may be pre-arranged. While working in the entry level position, the student can simultaneously be searching for a more suitable job, and still fulfill the requirement of being in an internship.(对学生来说,想在抵美之前就安排好工作是相当困难的,因为雇主都要面试求职者。然而,学校已经与愿意提供一份暂时性的基层工作的公司联系过,他们会尽快给学生安排工作。有些学校可以提前安排基层工作。在做低等级工作的时候,学生可以同时找更合适的职位,这依旧符合实习的要求。)
Q: What kind of employment will I get initially?(我在最开始的时候能找什么样的工作?)
A: Initially, all students will be asked to accept an "entry level" position paying $7.00 to $10.00 per hour, mostly in the service or sales industry. These initial jobs are generally below the skill and wage level of jobs for which the students are actually qualified. However, at any time after starting in the initial employment, when the students have become accustomed to the American workplace and feel they are ready to apply for and accept a position which is more satisfying and which pays a higher salary--they are free to change employers. (起初,所有的学生将被要求去接受一份每小时7美金到10美金的“基层(低等级)工作”,大部分是在服务行业和销售行业。学生实际上所能胜任的工作技能和相应的工资,普遍地要比这些初期的工作高。因此,在开始这种底层工作之后,当学生适应了美国的工作环境,并且感觉他们准备好了去申请并且接受更令人满意的和更高薪水的工作时,他们可以随时换工作。) (Usually, only a two week advance notice will need to be given to the current employer in order to leave for a different job换工作时,通常要提前两周通知现在的雇主。).
Q: How much can I earn in an internship job? (我在实习工作期间能挣多少工资?)
A: Some entry level jobs will pay approximately $7.00 to 10.00 per hour, but more highly skilled positions may pay $10 or more per hour. Students are allowed to work up to 40 hours per week, with overtime also possible, depending on the job. The type of job will depend on a student's work experience, background, skills, English ability and personal ambition.(一些基层工作将付大约每小时7-10美金的工资,但是高级技能的工作岗位可以付每小时10或10美金以上的工资。学生每周最多可以工作40小时,根据具体情况可能会有加班。工作的种类将取决于学生的工作经验,背景,技能,英语能力和个人抱负。)
Q: What kind of work will I do?(给我安排什么样的工作?)
A: The work you do will depend on your background, previous work experience, bachelor degree's major, skills, English ability and personal "drive." We have applicanted in a variety of jobs, all at different levels and pay scales. The lower paying jobs are between $7-10 an hour and require little work experience and skills. The highest paying job an SPONSER intern had was a gentleman who was a financial advisor in a bank and his pay was over $100,000 a year. However, he came into the program with quite a bit of experience and skills, and his English is excellent. Please check this page which shows examples of companies where SPONSER interns are working(你将要去做的工作取决于你的背景、以前的工作经验、本科的专业、技能、英语能力和个人“动力”。我们已经给申请人安排了许多不同水平的以及不同工资标准的工作机会。较低收入的工作在每小时7-10美金,需要较少的工作经验和技能。主办方安排的最高薪的实习工作薪酬超过了每年10万元,他曾在一家银行做过财务顾问。不过,他参加这个项目的时候是具有很多工作经验和技能的,而且他的英语也很优秀。请检查此页,该页显示主办方的实习工作单位的情况。)
Q: Can you tell me some of the companies that I might be working for? (你能告诉我一些有关我可能会去工作的公司的情况吗?)
A: Although we can not tell you exactly where you will be working until the SPONSER placement agency has reviewed your file and resume, and you have completed the interviewing process, we can tell you what companies have hired students in the past. Intermountain Health Care, Primary Children's Hospital, American Express, Discover Card, Goldman Sachs, Dillard's, Citibank, Convergys, Fidelity Investments, Alt View Hospital, Aerotek, CCI Mechanical, Overstock.com, Marriot Hotel, Ramada Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Fifth Third Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, Delta Design. For a full list of where the SPONSER interns are working, please visit the companies page.(虽然我们不能确切地告诉你将在哪工作,这要等到主办方实习工作的代理机构审查了你的档案和简历之后,同时,你已经通过了面试;但是我们能告诉你以前一些雇佣过学生的公司名称:Intermountain医疗保健、儿童医院、美国运通、发现卡、高盛投资公司、迪拉德氏公司、花旗银行、Convergys、富达投资、Alt View 医院、Aerotek、CCI机械、Overstock网站、万豪酒店、华美达酒店、希尔顿饭店、五三银行、富国银行、德尔塔设计。要找完整的主办方实习生工作的岗位清单,请浏览公司的网页。)
Q: Can I find an internship job only in the field related to my major or is any field O.K? (我只能找到与本专业相关的工作,还是任何领域的都可以?)
A: The employment needs to be related to an integral part of the curriculum. Consequently, a job which is related to concepts and principles that you may be learning in any of your classes will be acceptable.(实习工作需要与你的所学课程(教学大纲)的整体部分有关(即实习是教学大纲要求的一部分)。因此,与你所学的任何课程的内容及理论有关的工作都行。)
Q: How many working hours will I probably work each week?(我每周大概工作多少小时?)
A: Your employment can be as a regular full time employee with the same benefits as are granted to all other employees. Most employees work 40 hours per week and receive a one week vacation per year. However, part-time employment is also available.(你的工作岗位可以与一个正常的全职雇员工作的时间一样,并享有同等的福利。绝大部分雇员每周工作40小时,每年有1周的假期。当然,也可以做兼职。)
Q: How soon after my arrival can I begin Curricular Practical Training employment?(我到校后多久能开始我的课程实践工作?)
A: By law, you can apply for a Social Security number 10 days after your arrival. However, immediately after arrival you are allowed to begin working with a career specialist at the campus in locating and identifying possible employers, and in learning how to apply for employment in the U.S. Most students obtain employment in the first month, while for others, it takes longer. The time required to obtain employment depends on the skill sets of the student, especially the level of the student's oral English and communication ability.(依据法律,你在到校十天后可以申请社会保障卡号。然而,你一到学校就可以马上与校内的职业辅导专员一起开始着手做有关事项,包括工作定位,以及筛选潜在的雇主,学习如何在美国申请工作等。大部分学生在第一个月就找工作岗位,而有一些学生就要花费更长的时间找工作。获得工作岗位的时间长短取决于学生的技能,特别是学生的英语口语水平和交际能力。)
Q: Do I have to work overtime? Can I keep the overtime bonus?(我要加班吗?我能有加班费吗?)
A: Some companies want the interns to work overtime, while others do not have overtime available. However, you may keep for your own use all overtime income that you may earn. (一些公司要实习生去加班,其他公司不要求加班。不管怎样,你所有挣得的加班费都由你自己支配。)
Q. What if I can't find employment?(如果我找不到工作怎么办?)
A. Because there are many entry level jobs available, it is highly unlikely that an intern would not be able to find some type of employment. However, depending on your work experience, skills, and English ability, it may take up to two months to be placed in the entry level job. The more work experience you have, and the better your English skills, the quicker you will obtain a position.(因为有很多基层的工作可以选择,所以实习生找不到工作岗位的情况是不太可能发生的。但是,取决于你的工作经验,技能和英语能力,你可能需要2个月来找到在基层工作。你的工作经验越多,并且你英语技能越好,你就会越快地找到工作。)
Q: Do I have to have a social security card and a work permit?(我要有社会保障卡和工作许可证吗?)
A: Yes, you will need a social security card in order to start working. The procedure for obtaining a Social Security card and permission to work begins with obtaining a job offer letter from a prospective employer. Once an employer agrees to hire an applicant, such a letter will be issued by that employer. The letter is to be taken to the university for a signature on the student’s original I-20 form where Curricular Practical Training is authorized. This signature by the university official on the I-20 serves as the co-op student’s “work permit”. The next step is to take the job offer letter and the signed I-20 to the Social Security office where application is made for a Social Security Number. (是的,你需要有社会保障卡才能开始工作。获得社会保障卡和工作许可证的程序是首先要取得一份准雇主的聘用信。一旦雇主同意聘用申请人,他将会签发这封信。这封信要送到大学去,学校要在学生的原始I-20表格上签字,该表授权学生进行工作实习。这个由学校官方在I-20表格上的签字就被当做该学生的“工作许可证”。下一步就是带着聘用信和签过字的I-20表格到社会保障处申请社会安全号码。)
Q: Will I have to pay taxes?(我要交税吗?)
A: Your employer will be required to hold back funds from your monthly earnings to cover any taxes that you might owe. However, after April 15th of each year most international students find that they get a refund for some of this withheld amount. (你的雇主每月要从你的工资里预扣一定的钱来支付税以及其他可能的欠款。但是,在每年的4月15日以后,绝大多数国际学生会收到一些退回来的预扣款。)
Q: Is there a way for me to work before actually starting to attend classes in order for me to save more money and add it to my current savings? (有什么方法可以让我在实际上课之前就开始工作,以便我能攒下更多的钱,添加我的存款?)
A: Students must first be registered and attending their first semester classes before they can legally start working. They also need to have received their social security card. This process can take two to four weeks. However, students can start looking for employment as soon as they are registered for classes.(在开始合法工作之前,学生必须先注册,并且开始上第一学期的课程。他们还需要有社会安全卡。这个过程需要花费2-4周。当然,学生一注册就可以开始找工作。)
Q: Could the work authorization be possibly converted into a full time work permit upon completion of the Masters program? (当完成硕士课程之后,这个工作许可以变成全职工作许可吗?)
A: Converting the internship job into a full time job, such as under an H1-b, is possible. But, it all depends upon whether the company you find to work for during the internship is willing to sponsor you for an H1-b(在H1-b的情况下,把实习工作变成全职工作是可能的。但是,这完全取决于你在实习期间工作的单位是否愿意帮你申请一个H1-b。)
Questions about Admissions(关于入学的问题)
Q. Is there a deadline for applying?(有申请截止日期吗?)
A: Most schools have start dates from five weeks to three months. Applications will be accepted and processed at all times of the year and the school will make special efforts to notify the applicants quickly of the status of their applications. (大部分学校有开始日期,从5周到3个月不等。学校在一年之内的任何时间都会接受和审核申请人,而且,学校会做出特别的努力尽快通知申请人他们的申请状况。)
Q: I can not get my bank statement until I have an acceptance letter. Can I send my application packet in now (without a financial document) and send the bank statement in after I receive acceptance? 我直到有录取通知书才能得到我的银行结单。我能现在就寄我的申请文件(不包括财务文件),并且在收到录取通知书之后再寄银行结单,可以吗?
A: Yes, your application can be processed with most schools without the financial documents. As soon as you do receive your financial documentation you will need to submit it, because the school cannot issue your I-20 without having the required financial documents. If you need the acceptance letter before you can get the financial documents, then please write a note to the school stating this fact and include it with your application packet. This way the school can go ahead and process your application without the financial information. (是的,大部分学校都能在没有财务文件的情况下就处理你的申请文件。你一收到财务文件就需要提交给学校,因为学校在没有必要的财务文件时是不能发出你的I-20。如果你需要在你得到财务文件之前就有接收信,请给学校写封信说明这一事实,将其附在你的申请文件里。这样,学校就可以在没有财务文件的情况下开始处理你的申请文件。)
Q: Does the bank statement have to be in a sponsor's name or is it ok if it is in my name? (银行对账单必须写资助人的名字,还是可以写我自己的名字?)
A: The bank statement can be either from your bank account or that of a "sponsor", or a combination of the two bank statements. If you use a sponsor's bank statement you will also need to have the sponsor write a letter to the school stating the following: "I am the sponsor for _______ and I intend to provide him/her with financial assistance during his/her first year at the (name of school) up to the amount of $_____, (银行对账单可以以你的银行户头形式或者一个资助者的形式,或者是这两个银行对账单放在一起。如果你使用资助者的银行对账单,你还需要资助者给学校写封信说明如下:我是….的资助者,我打算为他/她在第一年提供在......(学校名称)的费用….元美金。)
Q: What should I do if my bank statement does not reflect US dollars? (如果我的银行存款证明不能反映美元该怎么办?)
A: If you can not obtain a bank statement reflecting the equivalent value of your money in U.S. dollars, you may get the conversion from the internet. Just print the page showing the conversion and include it with your bank statement. (如果你的银行存款证明不能显示相应的美元数额,你可从互联网上得到汇率。只要打印出表明汇率的这页纸,包含在你的银行存款证明内。)www.currency-exchange.co.uk/Currency-Converter.htm
Q: Can I have more than one sponsor? (我能有一个以上的资助人吗?)
A: You can have as many sponsors as you need. However, you and the sponsors need to make it clear to the visa officials why they are willing to provide money to you for your education in the U.S. (你可以有很多的赞助人。但是,你和你的赞助人需要让签证官员明白为什么他们愿意资助你在美国学习。)
Q: I am from a country where all the schools are taught in English. Why do I need to submit English Proficiency Documents? (我来自一个全英文授课的国家。为什么我还需要提交英语水平文件?)
A. In order to not be in violation of the accreditation association, the schools need to have physical documentation in the student's file. Unless the country is considered to have English as the first language, (i.e. Canada, U.S., Australia, UK) all applicant's need to submit physical proof of proficiency. (为了符合认证关联条件,学校需要在学生的档案里包含实质证明文件。除非所在国家的母语是英语,如:加拿大、美国、澳大利亚、英国,所有的申请人都需要提交熟练掌握英语的实质证明。)
Q: Is the GRE or GMAT score required for admission? (入学需要GRE和GMAT成绩吗?)
A: No. For admission, it is not required that you have taken either the GMAT or the GRE exams. However, we recommend you take the GMAT or GRE exam. We suggest this because, having taken the test, you are more likely to be viewed as a more serious student by the U.S. visa officer when you go to apply for your visa. At some schools you will be required to take the GMAT exam before you graduate. (不需要,就入学条件而言,学校不要求你参加过GMAT或者GRE考试。但是,我们建议你参加GMAT或者GRE考试。这是因为,当你去签证的时候,参加过这类考试,你就会给签证官留下印象,即你是认真考虑到美国读书的。有一些学校在你毕业之前会要求你去参加GMAT考试。)
Q: What if I am in my last semester of undergraduate study. Can I apply to the program now? (如果我是大学本科的最后一个学期的学生,我能申请这个项目吗?)
A: Some schools will process your application even if you have not yet graduated. You can send the transcripts that you now have along with the other required application materials. Also, include a letter indicating that your final transcripts will be sent as soon as you have received them from the school. In the meantime, the school can work on "conditional" acceptance for you--that is, you can be accepted for admission subject only to presenting those final documents of graduation. Please contact us to find a list of schools that will process your file in this manner. (即使你还没有毕业,一些学校也会处理你的申请书。你可以把你现在的各科成绩单与其他所要求的申请资料一起寄给学校。另外,你还要附上一封信,说明你一收到你的最终成绩单就会把它寄给学校。同时,学校可以给你出具有条件的通知书,就是:只有提交你的最终毕业文件,学校才能同意你入学。请与我们联系,查阅可以用这种形式处理你的文件的学校清单。)

Q: Can I apply directly to the school for admission to the work-study program, or do I need to go through a consulting agent or placement agency in my home country? (我能不能直接去学校申请勤工俭学计划,还是我需要通过在我自己的国家内的咨询代理或者安置机构申请?)
A: No, you must apply through SPONSER or an authorized agency.

Please contact SPONSER to find out the name and contact numbers of the consulting agent or placement agent in your area.(不能,你必须通过主办方或者一家授权机构去申请。如果你已经是在美留学生,你希望转入勤工俭学计划,你可以通过coopadmin@sponser直接向主办方申请。如果你居住在海外,需要回国去当地的美国领事馆申请美国签证,你就需要联系在你的国家的主办方的办事处或者授权的咨询机构或安置机构。咨询机构或者安置机构将收取一定的费用以处理你的申请材料,帮助你按照美国政府入境事务条例行事,对你进行培训以准备在美国领事馆的签证面试,以及安排参加项目的日期和签证面试的时间。请联系主办方,以找到在你的地区的咨询机构或者安置机构的名称和电话号码。)
Questions about Work-Study Program(关于勤工俭学项目的问题)
Q: What is Curricular Practical Training? (什么是必修课程实习培训?)
? A: Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is the legal description for the paid internship employment that students engage in while in a graduate school work-study program. The purpose of CPT is to give students practical experience in the workplace to augment what they are learning in the classroom(课程实习培训的合法解释是,学生边带薪实习工作边完成学习-工作项目的硕士课程。课程实习培训的目的是让学生在工作场所得到实际工作经验来提升他们在课堂里学到的知识。)
.
Q: What is Optional Practical Training? (什么是选择性实习培训?)
A: Optional Practical Training (OPT) is the legal description for the one year employment that you are allowed to engage in after you graduate from your Master's program. The purpose of OPT is to give you further practical experience in the workplace relating to your major. (选择性实习培训的合法解释是,硕士毕业后,学生允许有一年的工作机会。其目的是根据你的专业为你提供进一步的实际工作经验。)
Q: Am I allowed to engage in both CPT and OPT? (我是否可以同时参加必修课程实习培训和选择性实习培训吗?)
A: Yes. However, if you work for more than one year of CPT, then you may not be allowed to do the one year of OPT.(可以。但是,如果你参加了一年以上的必修课程实习培训,那么你就不能被允许参加一年的选择性实习培训。)
Q: If I choose to work in CPT for the entire length of time I am in the Master's program, will I be allowed to do so?(如果我选择在整个硕士课程里都参加必修课程实习培训,允许我这样做吗?)
A: Yes, you are allowed to engage in CPT for as long as you are a student in the Master's program, even if that is for 2 1/2 years or more. However, as indicated above, if, in fact, you do work full time for more than a year in CPT you may not be allowed to do the additional one year of OPT after you graduate. (是的,只要你是在读硕士你就被允许参加必修课程实习培训,即使该硕士课程持续2年半甚至更长。但是,正如上面所说,如果,你实际上参加必修课程实习培训超过一年,那么当你毕业以后你就不会被允许参加额外一年的选择性实习培训。)
Q: How can I go to school and work at the same time?(我怎么能同时工作和学习?)
A: All Co-op courses will be offered in the executive format. That is, classes will be offered in the evenings and/or on weekends.(所有的合作课程都以可操作的模式来安排的。就是说,所有课程都将被安排在晚上和/或周末。)
Q: Can I take on-line courses?(我能参加网上课程吗?)
A: Yes. Some courses offered in the Master degree programs are available on-line. It is legal for international students to take one on-line course along with two on-site classes per semester. (是的。一些硕士学位课程是可以在网上学习的。对于国际学生来说每学期参加一个网上课程和两个现场课是合法的。)
Q: Can I transfer my credits from another school? (我的学分能从另一个学校转过来吗?)
A. The university may give credit for some courses already taken at the Master's level at another school, if the other school is accredited and if the course content being transferred is basically the same as one of the courses in the university's requirement for that major. The Registrar will make this decision when you arrive for your first class. (只要那所大学是被认可的,并且,只要被转学分的课程与本大学为那个专业所设置的课程中一个内容相同,本大学可以给在另一所大学学习过的一些硕士课程算学分。)
Q: What if I decide to transfer to a different university? (如果我决定转到另一所大学会怎么样?)
A: If you enroll at the university and choose to transfer to another university you are free to do so, so long as your bills at the university are all paid in full up to the date of transfer. (如果你入学以后决定转到另一所大学,只要你付清截止到转校日期时的学校账单,你可以那么做。)
Q: Is there any financial aid available? (是否有任何财务方面的资助?)
A: The financial aid that we can offer at the university is the legal right to obtain full time employment from an U.S. based companies for the entire time you are in the work-study program. Thus, students have the potential of earning in internship employment much more often than what they might obtain in a scholarship from a different university.(在大学我们能提供财务资助就是在勤工俭学项目期间,你在美国公司获得全程实习工作的合法权利。所以,学生在实习期间潜在的收入往往要比他们在不同的大学获得的奖学金要多。)
Questions about U.S. Visas 美国签证的问题
Q: I am not living in my home country. Can I apply somewhere else? 我没有居住在国内。我能在其他地方申请吗?
A: The U.S. consulates in each country of the world make the decision about whether or not a visa applicant must be in his/her own country in order to apply for a visa. However, the general custom is that an international student will be allowed to apply for a visa in countries other than his/her own. We recommend you check with the U.S. consulate in the country you are residing to make sure they will allow you to apply. We have seen applicants denied the visa because they did not check on this ruling first. 是否必须回他/她的国家申请美国签证,在任何国家的美国领事馆会做出自己的决定。但是,通常的情况是,国际学生被允许在居住国而非自己的国家申请签证。我们建议你与你居住地国家的美国领事馆核实一下,确认他们允许你申请。我们了解到,有的学生申请签证被拒绝了,就是因为他们没有核实具体的规定。

Q: What is SEVIS? 什么是SEVIS?
A. SEVIS is the Homeland Security Database. Homeland Security is now requiring F-1 students to pay a $200 SEVIS fee before the student can apply for the visa. Students will need a receipt showing payment of the fee before they can go to the visa interview. SEVIS是国家安全数据库。国土安全局现在要求申请F-1的学生支付200美元的SEVIS服务费,然后再申请签证。在去面签之前,学生要准备好付费收据。

Q: How do I pay the SEVIS fee? 怎么付SEVIS费?
A. Students can go to www.fmjfee.com and apply on line using a credit card which is the fastest way to make this payment. Students will receive an e-mail receipt which they will take to the consulate office at the time of their visa interviews. 学生可以到www.fmjfee.com网站,用信用卡在线支付,这是最快的付费方式。学生会通过电邮收到付费收据,在面签时带到领事馆。

Q: I don't have a credit card. How can I pay for the fee online? 没有信用卡的话,如何在线支付?
A: SPONSER can assist you in paying the SEVIS fee. Please contact us at admissions@sponser.com or an authorized SPONSER agency in your home country. 主办方会帮助你付SEVIS费。请与我们联系,admissions@sponser.com,或与所在地的主办方授权机构联系。

Q: Can my spouse or children accompany me to the US? 我能带配偶或孩子来美国吗?
A: A spouse will be allowed to apply for a visa to accompany the student. The spouse (with children) may apply at the same time the student applies, or may wait for several months to apply until after the student arrives in the U.S. and gets settled. The spouse will need to show additional financial support or a bank statement with sufficient additional money to support him/herself (and children) when accompanying the student spouse to the U.S. Most schools need an additional $6,000 per dependent. 配偶可以以陪伴的身份申请签证。配偶(带孩子)可以在学生申请时一起申请,或者可以等几个月,直到学生抵达美国,安顿好之后,再申请。配偶需要出示另外的财务证明或银行证明,以证明有足够的额外的钱,可以维持他/她自己(带孩子)在美国陪读时的生活。大多数的学校需要陪读者有额外的每人6千美金。

Q: Will I be able to obtain a student (F) visa to go to the U.S. to study if I have already applied for Diversity Immigrant Lottery and have been denied? 我曾经申请过移民抽签,但被拒绝了,我是否可以获得学生签证(F)?
A: A student visa (F-1) is a temporary visa in which the applicant must prove his/her intent to return to the home country after graduation. Anything in the student's background that suggests that the student's real intent is not to return to his/her home country may cause the application to be rejected. So, especially in the case of an applicant who has previously applied for the "lottery" immigrant visa, the visa officer may view that application as an absolute indication of the intent to immigrate (rather than to study). Consequently, getting an F-1 visa may be much more difficult for such a person. 学生签证F-1是一种临时性签证,申请人必须注明他/她的目的是毕业后回到自己的国家。学生的背景资料中有任何线索指示,其实际倾向于不回其自己的国家,这将导致拒签。因此,特别是像这样的例子,申请人已经申请过抽签移民签证,移民官可能把这次申请当作具有绝对移民倾向(非学习)的迹象。结果就是,此人申请F-1签证非常困难。

Q. Do I need permission from Immigration Services in order to work off campus? 我在校园外工作时,是否需要移民部门的许可?
A. Students will have an F-1 student visa and, by the nature of the university's "co-op" (work-study) program (which requires internship employment, no further permission is required by the Immigration Service. Once the student finds employment that is certified to be "curriculum related," the university will issue the appropriate authorization signature allowing the student to begin working. Students will also need to obtain the U.S. Social Security card before being allowed to legally work. 学生持有F-1学生签证,但根据大学的“合作”(工作-学习)项目的性质,校外工作是实习性质的,因此,不需要另外的移民部门的许可。一旦学生找到的工作是“与课程相关”的,所属的大学会出具相应的授权印信,允许学生开始工作。学生在开始合法工作前,还需要得到美国的社会保险卡。

Q: Can I take a break during summer quarter to return to my country then return back to school for fall quarter? 我能否在暑假期间回国,然后于秋季开学时返回?
A: Most schools will allow a school break. Students must attend school full time for 2 consecutive semesters (9 months and 18 credit hours) before they are eligible to take a vacation from their studies. However, some schools do not have summer breaks scheduled into their curriculum. 大多数学校允许放假。学生必须参加2个连续学期的全日制课程(9个月以及18个学分)后才有资格放假。而且,一些学校在教学安排中没有暑假一说。

Q: What is required in order to bring my spouse and family? 对配偶及家属陪读有什么要求?
A: In order for your spouse and/or children to accompany you, the university must issue a separate I-20 form. Your family can apply for an F-2 (dependant) visa. The university will need the following information for each family member (including spouse): full name, date of birth, country of birth, and country of citizenship. The schools will also require birth certificates for children, marriage license, and copies of all dependent passports. 为了你的配偶和/或孩子来陪读,学校必须办理单独的I-20表。你的家属可以申请F-2(家属)签证。大学需要每名家庭成员的信息如下:全名、生日、出生地、国籍。学校还要孩子的出生证、结婚证书,以及所有家属的护照复印件。

Q: If my visa is valid for only 2 years, will I need to get it extended before it expires? 如果我的签证只有2年,我是否应该在到期之前续签呢?
A: Having a 2 year visa does not mean that you have to go back to your home country at the end of two years. Rather, you can stay for as long as necessary beyond the two years in order to finish your education in the U.S. The length of the visa limits how long you have to cross the border into the U.S. 2年的签证并不是说2年结束时你得回国。相反地,为了完成学业,只要有需要,即使超过2年,你也能留在美国。签证的时间只是限定你在多长时间内可以通过美国的国界。

Q: I am already in the US on a B-1 visa. Can I change to F-1 student visa? 我已经在美国,持有B-1签证。我是否可以转成F-1学生签证?
A: If you are going to change to F-1, which you need to do in order to get into the paid internship program at the university, it is much better to do that while in your home country. If you come to the U.S. and then apply for a change of status to F-1 it can take up to several months of waiting while the immigration service processes your application. But if you take your I-20 form from the university to the consulate in your home country and apply for an F-1 student visa, the decision can me made immediately by the visa officials there. Then there will be no delay in your starting school and getting a paid internship job
如果你要转成F-1签证,这样的话,你就能参加勤工俭学的项目,但是,你最好在你自己的国家转签证。如果你在美国,申请转成F-1签证,等待移民部门办理你的申请就需要好几个月。但如果你用大学的I-20表到你自己的国家的领事馆申请F-1学生签证,发放签证是由当地的签证官当场决定的。这样,你开始上学以及找到带薪实习工作就不会被耽误啦。
