F-1 students may work on-campus at UCI. This work is limited to 20 hours per week during the quarter. Full time [anything more than 20 hours a week] is permitted during vacation periods.
F-1 students must receive approval from the International Center for any type of employment, including on-campus employment. On-campus employment approval is received by completing the F-1/J-1 On-Campus Employment form and submitting it to the International Center. The student will receive an employment eligibility form from the International Center acknowledging that his/her employment has been approved. F-1 students will need to resubmit this form every time a new on-campus job is accepted.
In some instances you may have On-Campus Employment at an Off-Campus Site, please schedule an appointment with an IC student advisor for more information and requirements.
