Employment Process : F-1 and J-1 (all categories)
In general, both F-1 and J-1 students are permitted to work part time, on-campus during the academic year; and full-time during school official breaks or vacation. They must contact our office to complete the on-campus employment permission form before beginning a period of employment.
