STEM-Eligible Degree Programs
Due to the technical nature of our programs, all of the graduate programs at the SoA have been assigned CIP (Classification of Instructional Programs) codes by the Department of Education that are STEM-eligible. This means that in addition to one year of Optional Practical Training (OPT), a student on an F1 visa may apply for a 24-month STEM OPT extension following graduation. All SoA STEM-designated degree programs are characterized by a rigorous, research-based pedagogy with emphases on computational design, building science, industry, and/or practice.
