On-Campus Employment During Winter Break for Continuing Students

Normally international students’ on-campus employment is limited to 20 hours per week when school is in session.  However, during official university academic breaks, continuing international students’ on-campus employment may exceed 20 hours per week.  This year’s academic winter break is 12/17/2016 – 1/8/2017.  During these dates, continuing students may work more than 20 hours per week on campus (subject to the hiring unit’s approval) provided that they are registered or intend to register at NC State for Spring 2017 and their I-20 program end date has not yet passed.  This does NOT apply to students who have already applied for OPT or plan to apply for post-completion OPT and whose I-20 has been or will be shortened to 12/16/2016 to indicate program completion in Fall 2016.  Students who will be completing should review the Program Completion & On-Campus Employment Eligibility Reminders section of the December 2016 International Student Newsletter Newsletter.
