International Employment

International students are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week on campus during the fall and spring semester, and may work full-time during official school breaks.  A realistic estimate of the maximum one can earn in an academic year is $2,500-$3,000. It is the student's responsibility to find a job on campus.

After successfully completing a degree, international students are eligible to apply to work for one year in the US in a field related to their degree.  This is known as optional practical training (OPT).
