(J-1) On-Campus Employment Authorization
On-campus employment means simply that you are paid by Indiana University, and the work must occur on the premises of Indiana University, and you may be employed in a student hourly position or an assistantship.
Full-time students are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week during the academic year.
You would be eligible to work more than 20 hours per week when the university is not in session (Spring Break, summer vacation and winter break). NOTE: Your eligibility to work on campus ends upon completion of your program of study.
In order to be eligible for on-campus employment, you must:
- A full-time student
- Have a valid DS-2019
- Be in good academic standing at Indiana University
- Your authorization to work will end when you complete your academic program, even if your DS-2019 still appears to be valid
How do I receive work authorization?
At the beginning of the Fall Semester, you will receive an email message from email@example.com, providing you with your work authorization. The email message will indicate how long the authorization is valid. You will need to keep that email message as evidence of your authorization.
If you begin your program of study in the Spring Semester or Summer session, you will receive your email message after you attend the orientation program.
You will only be eligible to begin working once you receive this email message.
Note: If you would wish to work more than 20 hours per week on campus, and the work is in your major field of study and is an integral/critical part of your academic program, please read our information about Academic Training.
Attention! If your DS-2019 is not issued through IU, you must discuss with your program sponsor to find out if you can apply for on campus work!
