Students may work no more than 20 hours per week on-campus while school is in session. While school is not in session, students are permitted to work 40 hours per week (example: summer or intercession break). These 20 hours include the work you do for your assistantship if you have one. You are not permitted to work off-campus without receiving PRIOR authorization from the U.S. Federal Government and/or the Institute for International Studies depending upon your visa status type. Employment possibilities are very limited. Scholars are permitted to work as stipulated on the DS-2019 for the Lock Haven University. You are NOT permitted to work anywhere else in the United States including being paid for a lecture or speech, without written authorization from the Institute of International Studies. If such opportunities arise please schedule an appointment with an Institute of International Studies advisor.
To find on-campus employment, please visit the Career Services website and look to apply for jobs that are listed as on-campus employment.
Once you receive an offer for an on-campus job, please come to the Institute for International Studies to begin the process of applying for a Social Security Number. Students must have an offer to begin this process. For more information on how to obtain a Social Security Number for work purposes, visit our forms web page.
