On Campus Employment for F1 Students

F-1 and J-1 students are eligible to work on-campus while attending classes. The work does not need to be related to your field of study. You must maintain legal F-1 or J-1 status while engaging in on-campus employment. J-1 students sponsored by the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) should request authorization to work on campus.

Tips for Getting a Job

U.S. Taxes

When you get an on-campus job, you will be required to pay tax on your earnings. You may qualify for exemptions if your home country has a tax treaty with the United States. Please work with your employer the UHV Human Resources to ensure you complete the necessary paperwork. International Programs sends out email notifications regarding U.S. taxes as early as October, November, December, and January. International Programs hosts mandatory U.S. Tax sessions in March.
