To be eligible for on-campus employment you must be enrolled in a full course of study and remain enrolled full-time. You are eligible for on-campus work as early as your first quarter at Stanford. Students may work "on campus" up to 20 hours per week when school is in session and full-time (more than 20 hours a week) during holiday and vacation periods.
You may be employed full-time during holidays and vacation periods, including summer vacations, provided you are eligible and intend to register for the next school term.
If you pursue on-campus employment, and do not have a Social Security Number (SSN), you must apply for a Social Security Number in a timely manner.
Note: Students on fellowships and assistantships may not qualify for additional on-campus employment if it exceeds the 50% assistantship or if the fellowship has employment limitations. Please check with your department.
For F-1 students, no employment authorization is required for on-campus employment from either Bechtel Internatiional Center or USCIS.
A new F-1 student who has been issued an initial form I-20 may work up to, but no more, than 30 days prior to the commencement of classes.
J-1 students must apply for employment authorization with their sponsoring agency. This applies to both on-campus and off-campus employment. If Stanford has issued your DS-2019, please submit the on-line application in Bechtel Connect. You must submit this 10 days before your employment start date. Contact your sponsoring agency if Stanford is not your J-1 sponsor.
One way to determine if your employment is truly on-campus is to verify if you will be receiving a paycheck from Stanford. If you are not clear about whether your employment meets on-campus employment requirements, please contact us.
