WORKING IN THE UNITED STATES
International Students in F-1 or J-1 visa status must take care to learn and obey the federal immigration regulations governing their visa status. The federal immigration regulations governing employment are strict. Employment is only allowed in certain situations and generally requires written authorization from the Office of International Student & Scholar Services BEFORE you can begin employment.
If your degree program requires that you enroll in a field placement, practicum or internship in your first semester, you must contact our employment advisors before the semester starts. We can guide you on the process needed so you can arrange the required authorization.

New international students who are in their first year of study in the United States are only allowed to work on-campus, at the campus where they are enrolled. Employment cannot begin until you are registered for classes.
