On-Campus Employment

On-Campus Employment 

Degree seeking F-1 students or J-1 students may engage in part-time (up to 20 hours per week) employment on the OSU campus while classes are in session. These students may work full-time (more than 20 hours per week) on-campus in between terms and during the summer vacation, as long as they plan to be a full-time student the following term. Language study students may not work at any time while in the U.S.

If you are offered on-campus employment, you will need to apply for a social security number and complete paperwork with OSU's Human Resources and Payroll Office. J-1 students must also obtain written work authorization from their Program Sponsor prior to beginning any type of on-campus employment.

Visit the ISAS Forms and Documents page for information on getting a Social Security card or J-1 On-Campus Employment.
