Working on Campus
International students in lawful F-1 status and registered for 12 credits or more, are eligible for employment on campus at Eastern Oregon University. EOU students who are employed on campus are limited to working 20 hours per week when classes are in session. Students may work up to 40 hours per week during vacation and holiday breaks (only if they intend to register for the next academic term). USCIS employment authorization is not required for international students who are employed on campus.
Given that non-immigrant students do not qualify for government financial assistance, they cannot be employed in positions that are reserved for Federal work-study programs at Eastern Oregon University. You are encouraged to visit departments on campus and apply for positions.
Transferring Institutions & Employment
F-1 students maintaining lawful status who plan to enroll at a new school for the next academic term may continue on-campus employment at EOU until the transfer release date of the student’s record to the new school. Once a student’s SEVIS record is transferred the student may begin on-campus employment at the new institution.
