International Students

Most international students at Xavier with F-1 and J-1 visas are eligible to work on and off campus at different times during their studies.

However, there are a variety of important requirements and regulations related to these forms of employment. For more information, use the links provided for more information below and then come to CIE for walk-in advising to learn more about the specifics.


Getting permission for international students to work in the U.S. is not as difficult as many employers think. Most international students are in the U.S. on non-immigrant student visas (F-1 and J-1), and these international students are eligible to accept employment under certain conditions.
