History, Affiliations and Rankings

Brigham Young University (BYU) was founded in 1875 by religious leader Bringham Young and is sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) with almost all of its students being members of the LDS Church and are required to follow a certain set of rules. Brigham Young, the second president of the Mormon church, who had overseen the establishment of the church in Utah, created the university in 1875. The school's original name was Brigham Young Academy, and its purpose was to prepare teachers for use in public schools. In 1876, instruction started. In 1903, the school was upgraded to the status of a university. 

BYU is a part of a space-grant and its athletic teams compete in Division I of the NCAA. 

Infrastructure, Campuses and Courses

The main campus of BYU which is located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains, in Provo, Utah stretches over an area of over 550 acres containing 295 buildings featuring different architectural styles from different time periods in the university's history. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) financially supports the university, which also has other campuses in Laie, Hawaii, and Rexburg, Idaho. It consists of eight colleges, including the David O. McKay School of Education, the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott School of Management, the J. Reuben Clark Law School, and the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies. Most fields of study provide master's degree programmes, while more than 50 programmes offer doctoral degrees. Facilities for atomic, plasma and condensed matter physics research are significant. The Ezra Taft Benson Agriculture and Food Institute and the Center for Family History and Genealogy are also located at the university. This university offers numerous degree programmes across a wide variety of disciplines, giving its students various subject options to choose from.

Part-Time Job Rules for International Students in the USA

  • When school is in session, your US student visa permits you to work up to 20 hours per week on campus and full-time during school breaks (up to 40 hours per week).

  • The employer must ensure that the employment should not displace (take a job away from) a US resident.

  • F1 students are permitted to work in the United States, but only under specified circumstances and in compliance with the US Citizenship and Immigration Service's complicated standards and restrictions (USCIS).

  • Many US colleges need approval from the International Student Office before taking any on-campus job, and such employment may not be permitted during a student's first semester or year.

Types of Part-Time Jobs in the USA

There are two ways international students can get part-time jobs in the USA. They can either look for on-campus jobs or off-campus jobs.

On-Campus Jobs: On-campus employment is defined as work that takes place on campus or at a school-affiliated off-campus site. Some examples are working in a campus bookshop, cafeteria, or other facilities where students may assist. To be considered for this position, you must apply at least 30 days prior to the start of school. Speak with your DSO about applying. If you're authorised, your DSO will provide you with a letter of approval, which you'll need to apply for a Social Security number (SSN).

 Off-Campus Jobs: Off-campus jobs are relatively easy but not always in proximity. F1 students can gain authorization to work under certain training programmes. This form of part-time work is not difficult to acquire. However, it is only available to F1 students who have completed at least one full academic year of their programme of study and who have an economic hardship that meets the Department of Homeland Security's urgent conditions. Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) are two programmes designed specifically for students who want to obtain experience in their field of study.
