Employment for International Students
In order to maintain valid nonimmigrant status, a student must not work in the United States, unless the employment is specifically authorized under the regulations. However, students are authorized on-campus employment up to 20 hours while school is in session. Other than on-campus employment, they are several other categories of employment that may be available to students. The student should visit the International Student & Scholar Services to verify which employment option is available according to their visa category.
