Employment opportunities, such as on-campus jobs, internships and practical training programs under USCIS and/or Lakeland Rules and Regulations, are available. An international student may work up to 10 hours per week while school is in session and up to 40 hours during summer vacation.
You must apply in person for an on-campus job after arrival at the campus. Hourly wages start at $7.25 per hour of work.
On and off campus employment should not be considered as a significant source of income, and cannot generally be used as a source of your funds for education.
To work off campus, you must be in a degree program for a minimum of one academic year and obtain proper authorization from USCIS or Lakeland College. Employment without authorization is a violation of your F1 visa status, and you are subject to deportation.
For off campus employment under practical training programs, an international student must be full time on the degree program for at least one academic year (9 consecutive months or two semesters) before starting work. The college has additional requirement for internships.
Detailed information regarding employment opportunities will be given to you during the international student orientation right after you arrive at Lakeland.
