International Student Employment - Questions & Answers

Am I eligible to work at Amherst College?

F-1 Visa holders are eligible to work at any position on campus. You are not eligible to work at off-campus federal work-study sites (examples: Reader to Reader, Inc., Girls, Inc. or the Jones Library). Consult the International Student Office about the possibility of working at one of the other Five Colleges.

Aid for First-Year and Transfer Students

Your educational objectives should be the most important factors in choosing a college, but the cost of attendance may also be a major consideration for you and your family.  Amherst College is committed to making financial aid available to all students with financial need so that cost does not become the determining factor in making a decision about Amherst.  For this reason, you should not fail to apply for admission to Amherst because of financial need.
