Employment of F and J Visa Students


Graduate and undergraduate students who possess either F or J visas are limited by their visa status to no more than 20 hours per week of employment unless special permission is given by the International Programs Office and Immigration and Naturalization Services. All F and J student visa holders are informed of this limitation upon admission to the University of Massachusetts by the International Programs Office. Failure to adhere to the 20 hour per week limitation can place F and J students in violation of their visa status and may result in deportation.
