Employment for International Students

Immigration regulations restrict employment for F-1 and J-1 students, because the primary purpose of the visa is to study. You should verify that you have the appropriate authorization before engaging in any form of employment. For immigration purposes, employment is defined as the exchange of services for any form of compensation, monetary or otherwise. Unauthorized employment is a serious violation of your immigration status and may result in the termination of your SEVIS record.

There are several employment options for international students, depending on your visa.
