Full-time International Students on F-1 Visas who are in status can work on campus up to 20 hours each week. The type and availability of employment is different each quarter. Please contact the Global Education Office for further information.
Off-Campus Work Permission
International students may work on campus while attending Community Colleges of Spokane. International students are not permitted to work off campus.
Students are eligible after completing their program of study or after completing at least 9 months of their program for a one-year work authorization (curricular practical training--CPT or optional practical training--OPT). This "internship" permits international students to work anywhere in the United States for up to 12 months.
These one-year work authorizations are a great way for international students to improve their English, earn money, develop professional skills, and broaden their cultural experience in the United States. Call or visit the Global Education Office.
