Maricopa Emergency Management System Alert

  CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE – CAMPUS CLOSED:   All in-person activities and events are postponed. In-person and hybrid courses have been moved online. Online/distance classes continue as scheduled. Students are encouraged to contact their instructors for any additional class information.

Employment Options

If you are an F-1 student, you are eligible to work part-time (20 hours or less per week), on-campus as long as you meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • You must be a full-time student (enrolled in 12 or more credit hours).
  • You must have a valid, activated SEVIS Form I-20 from Scottsdale Community College.
  • You must have a valid, unexpired passport.
  • You must have an I-94 card that is marked "F-1 D/S."
  • You have obtained a Social Security Card (see Jen Sydow in the Center for Civic and Global Engagement (SC-185) for more information).

If you are a new student, it is recommended that you do not have a job during your first semester so that you may focus on your studies and get accustomed to the American educational system and culture. Please note that there are limited jobs available on campus, generally in the library, cafeteria, or campus public safety office. The pay is usually about $10.75 per hour. To find a job, it is your responsibility to check with the individual departments, or in the Academic & Career Advisement Center where most departments post their job openings.

You may NOT engage in on-campus employment if any of the following applies:

  • You are not registered as a full-time student (or, if working during the summer term, you have not registered for the upcoming fall semester)
  • You have graduated and have not applied to begin a new program at SCC in the next available term.
  • You do not have valid documents as listed above.
