On-Campus Employment

"Employment" is any type of work performed or services provided in exchange for money, tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, food or any other benefit. If you receive no pay or other benefit for work performed, this activity is not defined as "employment" and is considered to be "volunteer work."

Enrolled students in F-1 status may work on campus. These students do not need to apply for permission from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). To qualify, these students must be “in-status”. This qualification means that the student has a:

·  Valid Form I-20

·  I-94 with a Duration of Status (stamped D/S in passport) notation

·  Valid Passport

F-1 students are allowed to work on campus up to 20 hours per week when school is session. During vacation periods (summer, winter and spring breaks), these students are allowed to work on campus up to 40 hours per week.

Once these students are hired, they must complete the Employment Eligibility Form I-9 at the International Student Services located in HMB E253. 

Important Note:

Staying in the United States with an EXPIRED STUDENT VISA is OKAY! If the visa stamp in the student’s passport has expired, it is not necessary to renew it if the student wants to stay in the United States. However, if the visa has expired and student wishes to travel outside the United States and return, it will need to be renewed at a United States consulate or embassy outside the United States. It cannot be renewed within the United States.
