History, Affiliations and Rankings

Troy University was established in 1887 in Troy, Alabama, USA. Started as a Troy Normal School in 1887, it was founded with the aim to educate and train new teachers by providing a four-year college degree. In 1957, the Alabama Board of Education decided to grant the college status and right to issue the degrees. It adopted the name "Troy State College” in the same year. As the number of students and faculties increased, Troy University started gaining more and more international recognition by opening satellite sites in Montgomery, Phenix City, and Dothan to serve the military personnel posted at Maxwell AFB, Fort Benning and Fort Rucker. The Board of Trustees agreed on April 16, 2004, to change the name of the university from Troy State University to Troy University. The transition to the new name was completed in August 2005 and was the fifth in the school's history. The university is also accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate, baccalaureate, master's, education specialist, and doctoral degrees. SACSCOC accreditation validates Troy University's excellence in faculty and academic programmes, services, financial stability, and other areas. Furthermore, this accreditation makes federal student financial assistance money available to qualified TROY students, facilitates course transfer to and from other institutions, and communicates to employers and others that TROY graduates have received a high-quality education.

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.
