1. Student Employment
Any full-time student is able to work on campus for a maximum of 20 hours per week when classes are in session. Jobs are available on campus, but it may not be possible to have a full twenty hours all the time; new students may have difficulty finding a job. Therefore, earnings from employment should always be viewed as a supplement and never as being crucial to meeting the expenses of studying in the U.S. because of its unpredictability.
