Students in F-1 and J-1 visa statuses may begin working on campus during their first term. Students in J-1 status need to inform ISSS prior to beginning employment.
Information on obtaining on-campus employment will be covered during Early Arrival by the Student Employment Office. Job postings will be available on-line beginning the first day of classes, with additional opportunities posted as they become available.
International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) recommends that new students plan to work only 5-10 hours per week (or less, depending on course load) during the first term. Student salaries range from $8.10-$9.90 depending on the position and your experience. You can familiarize yourself with the Student Employment Office by visiting their website.
