Whitman College offers on-campus job opportunities to international and domestic students. Due to employment restrictions on F-1 & J-1 visa students, international students at Whitman are given preference similar to work study-eligible students. Below is general information for international students seeking an on-campus job as well as information for students seeking special employment authorization.
- International students in F-1 or J-1 status may work in on-campus jobs without special authorization. When class is in session, international students may work up to 20 hours weekly; during academic breaks when class is not in session, international students may work up to 40 hours weekly. Please note that unauthorized employment will violate your lawful status and may result in status termination.
- If you are looking for a job, you can use Handshake, an online platform for on-campus jobs, internships, etc. If you need assistance with your Handshake profile, please contact the Student Engagement Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
