International students who work over a total of 20 hours per week (Sunday through Saturday) any week during the Fall or Spring semesters are subject to immigration status termination. This is a federal regulation, not just an ACU requirement. This termination is particularly detrimental to the student, as it marks their immigration record with illegal work in the United States and requires them to leave the US immediately.
The "International Student On-Campus Work Authorization Form" has been created to help avoid any students losing their immigration status, and is available online or in paper form in the HR office or the Center for International Education.
If you or your office employ international students it is vital that you:
If an international student submits more than 20 hours per week, they will be emailed by payroll and given 5 days to respond and let payroll know if an error has been made. Hiring managers will be carbon copied. If an error has not been made, the international student may be subject to having their immigration status terminated.
