J-1 Students

Employment options for J-1 students

As a J-1 student, you are required to have authorization for any type of employment that you wish to undertake. To remain in status, it is extremely important that you follow the federal regulations about employment.

In many cases, you must contact the Office of International Services (OIS) in Poplars 221 to get work authorization before beginning employment. Never work without getting authorization first.
