Students Under the Guarini School Programs

Policy Statement

International graduate students with F-1 nonimmigrant status are limited by federal regulations to no more than 20 hours of on-campus employment per week. For Ph.D. students, the stipend is considered, for immigration purposes, to be employment and is subject to the 20-hour limitation. This means that international Ph.D. students are not eligible for additional on-campus work during academic terms.
