F-1 Visa Employment Opportunities-On-campus Employment

January 17th, 2008 by Brian D. Zuccaro

  • Most F-1 students may engage in on-campus employment without obtaining specific permission if the student is engaged in a full course of study and the employment will not displace a U.S. resident. 8 C.F.R. § 214.2 (f) (9) (i).
  • On-campus employment must be performed on the school’s premises or at an off-campus location that is educationally affiliated with the school and is an integral part of the school’s educational program.
  • An F-1 student’s on-campus employment cannot exceed 20 hours a week while the school is in session, but an F-1 student may work on campus full time during school breaks.
