While you're a student at Knox, you are permitted to work on-campus from the day your program begins until you graduate. Many international students hold on-campus jobs at Knox.

To find a job, begin by using Handshake to search and apply for jobs. Students are also encouraged to ask departments or offices for whom they're interested in working whether any jobs are available. Please note that some jobs posted on the Job Bank take place off-campus, and visa regulations do not permit F-1 students to hold those jobs.

During academic terms, students can work up to 10 hours per week on-campus. During vacation periods, you can work full-time, up to 40 hours per week.

Once you begin working, you'll need to apply for a Social Security Number (SSN). You should go to the Business Office to complete payroll information. The Office of International Student Services can then assist you with your SSN application.
