Are there any visa or work permit issues for international students?

If you are an international student who will be graduating from MIT by June 2020, you will need to secure F-1 post-completion Optional Practical Training authorization before being able to participate since you will no longer be an enrolled student.

For international students who will be continuing their education at MIT on an F-1 visa, participation in MIT delta v is considered on-campus employment since you are receiving stipends from MIT.  Therefore, no CPT or OPT authorization would be required.
