Students with a scholarship from the Ministry of Higher Education, Saudi Arabia Cultural Mission (SACM) need documentation to maintain their scholarship. Some of this documentation is provided by OIES and some is provided by the Office of the Registrar. We do not know of anything that SACM requires directly from the faculty or advisors.


Off campus internships require approval for Curricular Practical Training (CPT). CPT is work training that is an integral part of an established curriculum, this includes: “alternate work/study, internship, cooperative education, or any other type of required internship or practicum which is offered by sponsoring employers through cooperative agreements with the school.” CPT is available only prior to the completion of a degree program and the student must have a job offer for CPT at the time of application. CPT employment may not delay completion of the academic program.
