Can I work?
During a student’s enrollment at U.S Ling Institute, he or she may apply to work on-campus. This, however, does not guarantee the student a position with the school. Positions are limited, and the student must be approved and authorized before they can work. The student is typically only employed for one academic semester and the work is temporary in nature. Terminated, Completed, Canceled, Initial, or Deactivated students are ineligible to apply for on-campus employment at U.S. Ling Institute. If while working on-campus, a student transfers, is terminated, is placed on probation, or completes their program, they must immediately stop their employment at the school. On-campus employment cannot exceed more than 20 hour per week while school is in session. Students may work full-time during an academic vacation or at any time when school is not in session. for more information please visit https://studyinthestates.dhs.gov/sevis-help-hub/student-records/fm-student-employment/student-employment-overview
