Students on an F-1 or J-1 visa are generally permitted to work part-time on campus while they are attending UMass Dartmouth and maintaining their full-time student status. There are some instances in which students are permitted to work off-campus. Each kind of employment has its own regulations and limits (for example, no more than 20 hours per week while school is in session), and there are campus employment procedures that must be followed to obtain required paperwork and permission. This information will be reviewed at International Student Orientation.
Please see the links in this section which explain the regulations and procedures in more detail. Please ask questions about anything you don't understand. Not following the regulations for international student employment can have serious consequences for your study and your visa status.
Unless you are a graduate student with an assistantship, you are responsible for finding your own on-campus job. Please visit the Student Employment Office for further information about that process.
