On-campus employment for F-1 international students is limited to 20 hours a week (part-time) during fall and spring semesters and 40 hours a week (full-time) during summer and University breaks.
Many international students apply for positions in various campus locations such as the bookstore, Computing Services, the Campus Center, and Office of Residence Life or are employed through a scholarship, fellowship or assistantship in their academic department.
While the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations provide a variety of opportunities for F-1 international students to be employed during their time in F-1 student status, working without proper authorization is a serious violation of the F-1 student status. Please consult with the OIS with any concerns.
International students are not eligible for work-study positions on campus, as these positions are funded only for U.S. citizens and permanent residents by the U.S. government.
