Employment & Tax

Make sure to explore your employment options based on your status as an F-1 or J-1 student. Once you get a job, make sure you get a Social Security Number (if you don't already have one). And don't forget about your tax responsibilities.

Entrepreneurship


Thinking of starting your own business? If you're an F-1 student on OPT, you may be able to become a self-employed business owner in limited circumstances. Unfortunately, this type of advising is beyond our area of expertise. So, if you're serious about getting a business started, discuss your plans with an immigration attorney who works with a corporate attorney. See international students and entrepreneurship for more information. 

Employment

There are no walk-in advising hours on Monday, September 7 due to the Labor Day holiday.
