International Students Employment in F-1 Status

There are primarily four types of employment options available to F-1 students: 

  • on-campus
  • curricular practical training
  • optional practical training
  • employment sponsored by an international organization

Two other options exist but only apply to those experiencing unforeseen severe financial hardships. In the event you have further questions, please make an appointment or email Denise Smith at
