May I work while in the United States as an F1 Student?

You are not authorized to work while in the United States on an F1 VISA.  If you are admitted to an authorized Curricular Practical Training (CPT) facility that provides a paid stipend, then you may request a Social Security Card and receive remuneration. In addition, you may request an "economic hardship" to be allowed to work and you are also entitled to one year of "Optional Practical Training” upon graduation.

Response is applicable to the Miami Campus only.
