On-Campus Employment

On-Campus Employment:

All F-1 students are permitted to work on-campus at Lasell University part-time while school is in session and full-time during the summer and official school breaks.

  • Employment is limited to 20 hours per week while school is in session. The majority of on campus positions at Lasell are less than 15 hours per week. 
  • Employment can be more than 20 hours per week during the summer and official school breaks.
  • On-campus employment may only occur between the program start date and the end date on a Form I-20.
  • Some organizations, such as Lasell Village, Chartwells, Barnes and Noble, and the PACES tutoring program that are associated with Lasell, are considered on-campus employment. 
  • If the on-campus employment is paid, a Social Security Number is required.

Students that are offered on campus employment must complete the "International Student On-Campus Employment - Confirmation of Job Offer". It must be signed by your campus supervisor and a DSO in the Office of International Services. 

Remember that off-campus employment and internship opportunities are restricted for international students and could be a violation of the F-1 student visa, so students should never accept or engage in off-campus employment without prior authorization from the Office of International Services.
