F-1 students who have been offered employment with an International Organization such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund or United Nations may apply for special employment permission from USICE. Students may work part-time (20 hours per week) while school is in session and full-time during vacation periods, provided that the students will continue their studies during the following semester. Work permission with an international organization does not reduce the amount of curricular or optional practical training one can use. Note: Students cannot participate during the school year if they already have an assistantship or other on-campus employment equaling 20 hours per week.
You may begin working only after receiving the EAD from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Contact the International Student Advisor if you have any questions.
To apply for special employment permission you should do all of the following in the order listed:
Send to USICE within 30 days of receiving ISA's signature:
RECEIVING YOUR EAD CARD
The EAD will be mailed to the student. Current processing time is 30 to 60 days. However, the USICE is allowed 90 days to process any application.
There are special tax considerations for F-1 students who claim non-resident tax status. Please consult I.R.S. Publication 519 (http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p519.pdf ) for more information.
