International Students Working

International Students are allowed to work in the United States, however, the U.S.A. has very strict rules. Students with F-1 or J-1 visa can only work with authorization from a Designated School Official (DSO) or Alternate Responsible Officer. A social security card is not authorization.

Below is information about the types of work authorization that are permitted.
