F-1 Student Employment
F-1 students are eligible to work on campus. During the Fall and Spring semesters, you may work part-time (20 hours per week or less). During the Summer semester and authorized breaks, you may be eligible to work more hours. On-campus employment must stop when you have completed your area of study program.
J-1 Student Employment
J-1 students may work on-campus with prior written approval from their program sponsor (the institution that issued their DS-2019). All on-campus work, including assistantships, is limited to a combined total of 20 hours per week during the Fall and Spring Semesters. See On-Campus Employment for details.
