Employment is a benefit of the F-1 student status; however numerous rules and restrictions apply. Employment is considered to be the rendering of services for compensation. This includes financial compensation as well as other types of compensation, such as meals, housing, books or any type of reimbursement for transportation, lodging, etc. Working or accepting employment in the United States without proper authorization is considered a serious violation of immigration status, which can affect your ability to remain in the United States. F-1 students considering any type of employment in the United States should consult with International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) prior to beginning work. All students who plan to work in the U.S. must obtain a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) for employment and taxation purposes. Details about the Social Security Number application can be found on the Social Security Number (SSN) page.
