Understanding the basics
The M-1 visa (Vocational Student) category includes students in vocational or other nonacademic programs, other than language training.
M-1 students may engage in practical training only after they have completed their studies.
For M-1 students any off-campus employment must be related to their area of study and must be authorized prior to starting any work by the Designated School Official and USCIS.
