Some Basic Guidelines
An F-1 student is eligible to work on campus without
immigration's approval. Before seeking employment, see the International
Student Advisor to get instructions on how to get the required Social
Security card. The only positions that are available to international
students on campus are designated in the following link as College
Worker. College Worker positions are limited in number and are posted in the Center for Careers and Employment and in the employment database.
An F-1 student may not accept off-campus employment
at any time during the first year of study. After the first year, the
Immigration and Naturalization Service may give permission to work
under its severe economic hardship rule if the student can prove (document)
that his/her financial circumstances have changed severely at the end
of the first year.
