Finding a job on-campus
Once you are settled on campus and comfortable with your studies, having a job may be a good idea. You can earn extra money, meet new people and make new friends, improve your communication skills and learn how to manage your time more effectively. Campus jobs look good on a resume, too, and may provide strong references for future employment or graduate school.
Learn about employment opportunities on campus by visiting the International Programs Office. To work on campus during the academic year, you must be enrolled full-time (12 hours for undergraduates and 3 hours for graduate students) and be in good academic standing.
When you get a job, Complete the top section of the Temporary Employment form, Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9), and federal and state tax withholding statements (W-4s). You will also be required to present a Social Security card.
