Student Employment Program Manual

Employment of International Students


Immigration law dictates that eligible international students may only work a maximum of 20 hours per week on campus during the academic year.  When school is in recess for the entire week, international students may work up to 40 hours per week.  If school is in session for part of a week, then the 20 hour limit applies.

If school is in session during any part of the recess, the student is only allowed to work 20 hours in that week.  The work week starts at 12:00 am (midnight) Monday morning and ends Sunday at 11:59pm.

International student staff must also complete the required pre-employment paperwork with Human Resources to include applying for a Social Security number (if he/she does not already have one) in order to be authorized to work.
