Work Regulations for J-1 Students

On-campus Employment

On-campus employment regulations for students in J-1 status are essentially the same as those for students in F-1 status: You are permitted to work part time (up to 20 hours per week) while attending classes and full time (more than 20 hours per week) during vacation period and school holidays. University rules for on-campus employment also apply. For more information, please refer to the section on F-1 on-campus employment.

Off-campus Employment

Students in J-1 status are eligible to work off-campus work in their field of study only. This type of employment is referred to as academic training. At UDM, a period of academic training is often a part the J-1 program.
