502: International Student Visa Status
Student Employment Policy & Procedure Manual
Section 500: Employment Eligibility Requirements
An international student’s employment eligibility is regulated by the Federal government and based on the visa type he or she holds. A non-immigrant who is permitted to engage in employment may do so only after receiving authorization. Any unauthorized employment of a non-immigrant constitutes a failure of the non-immigrant to maintain appropriate and approved visa status. Students holding a visa are encouraged to seek counsel from an International Student Advising and Services (ISAS) student advisor. Colleges/Departments employing international students, or business centers receiving documents from a non-immigrant, are asked to contact ISAS to ensure that a student’s visa status permits her or him to be eligible for employment and that any action taken will not jeopardize the student’s visa status.
