On-Campus Employment for International Students

International students holding an F-1 visa and carrying an I-20 document issued by TMCC are eligible to work on any of the TMCC campuses or sites for up to 20 hours per week during the school year and full time during winter and summer breaks. However, in addition to an I-20 issued by TMCC, the student must be enrolled in 12 credits at TMCC (excluding workforce development and continuing education and/or audited classes) or be on authorized reduced course load, and maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA to be eligible to be employed by TMCC. In order to work in the U.S., potential employees must have a U.S. Social Security Number.

Per U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations, an F-1 international student must be attending TMCC using an I-20 document issued by TMCC in order to work for a TMCC employer. Students attending school on an I-20 document issued by a different college or university may not work on campus at TMCC without a work permit or written permission for curricular practical training issued by the school from which they received their I-20 document, regardless of whether they attend some classes at TMCC or not.

International students at TMCC who have questions about employment should contact Academic Advisment and make an appointment with a TMCC International Student Advisor.
