A student is currently working on CPT which ends today. Their OPT does not start until July. Are they able to continue working as an unpaid intern/volunteer until their OPT becomes active?

This question was answered by Admin - Not a Lawyer:

F1 students can work without CPT/OPT on campus. If the internship is off campus, then the student should wait until OPT starts
