Economic Hardship
(J-1 students)

J-1 students sponsored by San Diego State University may be eligible to engage in off-campus employment unrelated to their field of study due to unforeseen severe economic hardship.

The financial need must have occurred after your program began and must be thoroughly documented.

Note: You must try to find employment on campus before you are eligible to apply for this type of employment. Work through this program is limited to 20 hours per week during school session, but may be full time when school is not in session. 

Are you sponsored by an agency other than SDSU?

If you are a J-1 student who was issued a DS-2019 by another agency (Fulbright or ISEP, for instance), you must check with your sponsor for employment eligibility.
