As an international student, you have the opportunity to work on campus. Here are a few important things to know:

  • For a list of available on-campus positions, please visit the student employment job search As a reminder, working off campus without authorization will put your immigration status in jeopardy. If you need off-campus work authorization, please review our webpage.
  • On-campus employment is limited to 20 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters and up to 40 hours per week during breaks and the summer semester.
  • All positions, including stipend-paid jobs, cannot average more than 25 hours per week per calendar year. This is an ASU policy, not an immigration regulation.
  • If you begin on-campus employment during the summer session, you must be enrolled full time for fall 2024. An approved reduced course load is needed if fall 2024 is your last semester and you require less than full-time enrollment to complete your degree.
  • If you will be continuing at ASU with a new degree level, please contact us about your eligibility to work after completing your current degree program.

Graduating this semester?

If you will graduate this spring 2024 semester, you cannot continue to work on campus in a student worker position after your degree completion date. This includes RA,TA, and GSA positions as well.

Undergraduate students cannot work after May 6, 2024. Most graduate students also cannot work after May 6, 2024 but can confirm with their academic advisor to determine their degree completion date.

Please note: RA/TA/GSA offer letter end dates may be later than the degree completion date. Students may receive a paycheck after the degree completion day but all employment must stop by that date. Work performed after the degree completion date would be unlawful and grounds for the termination of your F-1 immigration status.
