International Students as GRAs

International students are eligible to be a GRA if they meet both of the criteria below:

1. You are eligible to work on campus (such as a full-time student in F-1 or J-1 student visa status)

2. You are currently employed on-campus for 10 hours or less per week at a job/TA/RA role. (NOTE: Fellowships that require performance of services in return for funding are considered employment hours.  International students in F-1 or J-1 status are limited to a total on-campus employment, combined of all work at MIT, to a maximum of 20 hours per week during Fall and Spring terms).    

If you have additional questions, please reach out to your ISO Advisor.
