International Students - Employment

The F-1 VISA is issued to students for the purpose of study; students should not expect work as a way to supplement their income while in the U.S. As an F -1 student, off-campus employment generally will not be permitted, however employment will be allowed in cases where work-training experience is required as part of the student's degree program.

Under these conditions, students must get approval from the academic department, the International Student officer and INS. Employment (practicum) is usually during the last semester of enrollment, and should be viewed as a way to acquire work/training experience, not as a way to make extra money.

In some rare instances, employment will be granted if student encounters unusual financial hardships not foreseen at the time of enrollment. In this case the student must provide documented evidence of financial hardship and will need to petition INS for employment approval. These extreme circumstances are handled on a student-by-student basis. Before requesting admission, students should examine their financial situation careful to in insure that funds are available during the enrollment period.
