On-campus employment is limited to 20 hours per week when school is in session during fall and spring semesters. Students may work full-time during SFAI’s winter, spring, and summer vacations.
On-campus jobs for international students are restricted to non-work-study positions. Non-work-study positions are fully funded and paid for by the SFAI hiring department, while work-study positions are subsidized by the U.S. government. Since F-1 and J-1 students are not eligible for U.S. federal aid, they are ineligible for work-study positions. In order to get paid for on-campus work, you must obtain a Social Security number (SSN).
