Employment

U.S. immigration law strictly regulates the employment of international students. While on-campus employment may be possible, this will only provide a small portion of your living expenses through such employment. Further, the possibility of on-campus employment cannot be used to demonstrate that you have sufficient funding for your expenses. The full amount of expenses must be documented before a visa certificate can be issued on your behalf.
