International students may work on-campus. Students working on campus typically earn $500 to $1,000 per year. Due to the competition for on-campus jobs, we cannot guarantee that any international or American student will get a job. See a database of on-campus ("work-study") jobs available. The U.S. government allows international students to work off-campus only in specific situations.
Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for loans and grants from the U.S. government.
