Can I be employed or work while on an F-1 Visa

Once you have been at NWFSC for one year, you may be permitted to work on campus. You will first need to get permission from a P/DSO and will be limited to 20 hours per week during the regular term (Fall and Spring). Off-campus employment is strictly prohibited and will result in termination of your Form I-20. Employment is defined as anything for which you may receive remuneration, this includes free food, lodging, field experience (non-curricular), gifts, etc. If you are unsure about off or on-campus opportunities, please speak with a P/DSO.
