F-1 Student Employment

The main purpose of the F-1 visa is to allow nonimmigrants to study in the United States. It is not a work visa. The types of employment allowed under the F-1 visa are limited by specific requirements. Before engaging in any type of work, F-1 students should verify they are eligible to work and have the proper authorization. Working without authorization is a serious violation of F-1 status.

The following information refers to immigration permissions and restrictions. Additional campus policies may apply. Please check with the UT Dallas Human Resources and the University Career Center for more information.
