On Campus Employment

While you are a student at USC, you may find that you want to pursue on-campus employment, either to supplement your academics or your income, or both. If you want a graduate assistantship, check first with your academic department. If you want a general on-campus job, check out the Career Center's Part Time Jobs page or the Handshake jobs platform.

F-1 Students

You can pursue on-campus employment for up to 20 hours per week during the school year, and for up to 40 hours per week during summer and winter breaks. Your passport and I-20 must remain valid for the entire duration of your on-campus employment.

 

J-1 Students

You are welcome to work on-campus during your time as a USC student for up to 20 hours per week during the school year, and for up to 40 hours per week during summer and winter breaks. If your program sponsor is someone other than USC, you need a letter of permission from your sponsor in order to be eligible for on-campus work. Your passport and DS-2019 must remain valid for the entire duration of your on-campus employment.
