Reminder: Please review the graduation policy for more information on your eligibility to work after graduation.

If your student employee works more than 20 hours per week when school is in session, they will lose their lawful F-1 student status which will result in the termination of your SEVIS I-20 record. This means that they will need to depart from the U.S. and attempt to make a new lawful entry. Working over the 20 hour per week limit may also jeopardize their eligiblity for any future benefits from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), such as "practical training," "academic training" and/or adjustment to another non-immigrant status. To ensure your international student is staying within their work hour limits of 20 hours per week, please be attentive to their hours when approving timecards.
