I see in some universities there are options to apply for a full-time pre-OPT for those who have completed all degree coursework requirements except thesis/dissertation. Some universities with full-time pre-opt discussion thread

Is this common among all universities in the USA or only applicable to specific schools where Universities make this option? I would like to know if there are options to:

  1. request full-time CPT in final semester considering all coursework is completed except thesis defense?
  2. or can an F1 student request for full-time pre-OPT in the same above situation? (coursework degree requirements completed except thesis defense)
