International Student Appointee Work Hour Limits

International Appointees: F-1 and J-1 students acknowledge that under U.S. SEVP policy, they may work no more than 20 hours any week while the university is in session, regardless of whether weekly hours are reported or how payment is structured (J-1 students must receive written authorization from OIS/program sponsor prior to beginning employment). Working more than 20 hours per week is permitted only during Thanksgiving, winter, spring, and summer breaks. Violations of these visa rules have severe consequences for students.
