Student Employment

International Students

International Student Employees:

  • Generally cannot exceed the maximum of 19 hours per week, and CANNOT ever average their hours over the month. Per federal rules, they have an absolute weekly limit while attending classes and penalties for exceeding them are very severe for both the student and the employer. Stay in good standing by always observing the 19 hour per week limit.
  • Can usually work up to 40 hours per week during a designated vacation period if returning for classes the following term.
  • Can work during summer if they are taking that as their SEVIS vacation quarter, but Fall-Spring they have to be registered for classes to be able to work.
