If your financial situation has changed since entering the United States and you need to find employment due to severe, unexpected financial difficulties, you may be able to receive authorization to work off campus.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) grants this authorization for F-1 students. The Office of International Services grants the authorization for J-1 students on an IU DS-2019.
It is generally difficult to obtain this authorization for F-1 and J-1 students. To learn more, make an appointment with an OIS advisor by calling 812-855-9086.
