Visa regulations allow for International Students to work up to 20 hours per week on-campus. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO WORK OFF-CAMPUS except in very specialized circumstances or if the work is part of their Optional Practical Training (OPT) or Curricular Practical Training (CPT). If you have questions or would like to make an appointment, please call the Office of International Students and Scholars at (217) 581-2321.
During International Student Orientation, a university representative will come and speak to you about your employment options and how to apply for on-campus work. Popular workplaces for International Students include:
• Dining Halls
• Computer Labs
Additional job opportunities may also be posted on the website of the Office of Financial Aid at http://www.eiu.edu/~finaid/employment_list.php?type=oncampus.
