Spring Break On Campus Employment
 
As spring break approaches we want to remind all students in F-1 status of their employment options and responsibilities.  From 03/23/2014 to 03/29/2014, continuing F-1 students in valid status are eligible to work on campus full-time.  During this time there is no limit to the amount of on-campus employment a student may perform.  Beginning  on 03/30/2014 the 20 hour per week limit will again be in effect for the remainder of the spring semester.
 
The same guidelines apply for J-1 students who have authorization from their program sponsor to work on campus.
 
Please remember that all off-campus work requires prior approval from the ISS Office. 
 
F-1 student can refer to the CPT information on our website at:  http://iss.uark.edu/2315.php .   Any off-campus employment without ISS approval is a violation of status. 
 
Your on-campus work eligibility expires with the completion of your academic program or your graduate assistantship.  Please consult with an ISS advisor if you have any questions regarding your last date of on-campus work eligibility.
 
Our office is here to answer any questions or concerns you may have about work authorization.  Please feel free to read the information on our website or to schedule an appointment online at iss.uark.edu.
