How to Find Available Jobs

At UCA, international students are eligible for employment known as 1501 positions. These are positions funded by the university and not funded by the US government. International students are not eligible for 1502 positions.  Students are limited by law to working a maximum of 20 hours per week during the semester, but may work on campus over 20 hours per week during breaks and holidays including Spring Break, Winter Break and summer vacation. If you do not meet the requirements of your F-1 or J-1 visa status, you will not be able to continue on-campus employment.

Students may earn approximately $3,600 per semester before taxes are taken out, by working 20 hours per week at a minimum wage of $11 per hour.  Although working on-campus can provide money for some expenses, it can not be depended on to cover your educational costs. Furthermore, student worker positions are limited and quite competitive.

It is up to you to find a job on campus.  All available student worker positions are on Human Resources website.  Do not answer emails advertising student worker positions, as they are fraudulent phishing emails.  You may access the available student worker positions by going to and clicking on the purple tab marked “Student”.

We highly encourage students to utilize UCA Career Services for support with developing a resume, interview skills and access to the WOW Closet.
