Employment for F-1 Students
Employment Restrictions for F-1 Students
A student in valid F-1 status may work for on campus for Kenyon College up to 20 hours a week when school is in session and full-time during official school breaks or vacations. Please note this includes the Kenyon Inn and the Kenyon Bookstore (both owned by Kenyon) as well as the KAC, LBIS, and other departments and offices on campus. However, the Village Inn, Gambier Grill, the Weather Vane, and the Deli are not Kenyon-owned and so are not "on campus" for employment purposes. You may not work for off-campus businesses without authorization from US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). Working without authorization off campus is a violation of your immigration status. Neither may you work for professors individually like babysitting, translating, or doing research (unless your compensation is paid by Kenyon College).
Your permission for on-campus employment ends if you withdraw from the college or when you graduate.
