F-1 Employment

Students in F-1 status are eligible for on-campus employment, and may be eligible for certain off-campus opportunities including practical training. Employment opportunities are restricted for international students so students should never accept or engage in off-campus employment without prior authorization from their International Student (IS) Advisor. We encourage students to reach out to their IS Advisor prior to beginning their job search in the United States.

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. You may also review our employment workshop schedule online.
