On-Campus Employment

Current Babson students in F-1 and J-1 status who are maintaining valid status may be eligible for on-campus employment.

Limitations

On-campus employment encompasses jobs that are paid directly by Babson College payroll.  On-campus employment is limited to part-time (up to 20 hours/week) during the academic year; it may be full time (over 20 hours/week) during official college vacation.

A professor paying a student directly in cash to help with a project IS NOT considered on-campus employment. 

Employment at the Babson Bookstore (run by Barnes & Noble) and for Babson Dining Services (run by Sodexho) is considered on-campus employment BECAUSE these companies in these lcoations are contracted to provide direct service to Babson students. 

Employment at any other Barnes & Noble or Sodexho location (not on Babson's campus) is NOT considered on-campus employment; specific off-campus work authorization is from the Glavin Office or USCIS is required.  

To view and apply for available on-campus positions, visit the Student Employment Office website. All students must have a Social Security number (SSN) before beginning employment.  

Authorization

  • F-1 STUDENTS do not need authorization to work on-campus (off-campus employment requires authorization). However, to apply for a Social Security number(SSN), students must complete and submit the On-Campus Employment Form (pdf).

  • J-1 STUDENTS must receive authorization BEFORE beginning on- campus (and off-campus) employment and report their employer information to the Glavin Office through the On-Campus Employment Form (pdf).
  • Meet with an international student adviser in the Glavin Office BEFORE beginning any employment to be sure that you do not accidentally engage in unlawful employment.
