On-Campus Employment

International students maintaining valid F-1 status are permitted to work on the Adelphi University campus while maintaining a valid I-20 and enrolled in a full course of study.

Employment is limited to 20 hours per week while school is in session and 40 hours per week during official school breaks. Please note that in all University offices, summer employment is limited to 27 hours per week as a University policy for all student positions. 

Students engaged in on-campus employment will need to seek a Social Security Number and complete university required tax and hiring forms through the appropriate offices.  For students interested in working on campus, the Center for Career and Professional Development can assist with student questions and procedures.
