J-1 Employment

Students in J-1 status are eligible for on-campus employment, and may be eligible for  Academic Training opportunities off campus.  International students should never accept or engage in off-campus employment without prior authorization from their International Student (IS) Advisor. International students should not plan to meet their educational or personal living expenses through employment earnings. 

OGS holds employment workshops throughout the semester for students interested in off-campus employment authorization. Please watch our online J-1 Academic Training session in Blackboard, and take the corresponding quiz in Blackboard.
