On-Campus Employment


  • International students are eligible to work in any on-campus department AFTER they have completed/maintained their full-time course registration and the International Student Coordinator (P/DSO) has marked their immigration record as ‘Active’ in the SEVIS system.
  • You may inquire about and apply for on-campus jobs through the University work-study coordinator in the Office of Enrollment Services (McDermott Hall, 1st floor) or by calling (201) 761-6070.
  • The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) limits students to no more than 20 hours/week during the fall and spring semesters. No restrictions are usually applied during the summer/winter breaks; however University limitations apply.
  • Subsidized campus housing may be provided to international students who work on-campus during the winter/summer breaks.
  • After obtaining and verifying a letter of employment from the department and work-study coordinator, the International Student Coordinator will help you apply for a social security number, which is required for payroll processing.
