F-1 students may work up to 20 hours per week on campus while classes are in session, and over 20 hours per week during the summer semester or doing eligible semester breaks (winter break and spring break).

F-1 students are eligible for any on-campus job from the moment they begin school at LMU.  On-Campus jobs include teaching/research assistants, jobs in the dining halls, school library, gym, etc.  Please contact our office if you are unsure if the job you are pursuing counts as on-campus employment or not.

On-campus employment is not permitted after the end date of your I-20 or after your graduation, whichever comes first.
