International students may be eligible for student employment funding, or for merit based employment programs.

International students who are interested in applying for institutional student employment funding should complete International Student Employment Application and submit to the Office of Student Financial Services. Please note that funding is extremely limited, and there is no guarantee that you will be awarded.

International students with student employment awards are welcome to contact the supervisors listed on the Student Employment Job List to apply for the opening. DO NOT contact the supervisor if you have not already been awarded student employment funding.

Supervisors must confirm that the international student they wish to hire has employment funding BEFORE offering a position. Students can verify their employment awards by obtaining an Employment Authorization from the Office of Student Financial Services. If a student or their supervisor has questions on funding availability, they should contact The Office of Student Financial Services.

NEW INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS (students who have never been on the Suffolk payroll) will be required to submit the following documentation:

  1. Employment Authorization- Available at the Office of Student Financial Services
  2. Foreign National Form- (front and back)

RETURNING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS only need to complete an Employment Authorization.  This form is available at the Office of Student Financial Services. It indicates the type of funding and amount that a student is eligible to receive. If a student has multiple positions, a separate authorization is required for EACH job.
