Graduate students also have opportunities to engage in part-time or full-time work to fund their studies. Be sure to take note of the time and hours a given job requires, as many positions may not be compatible with full-time graduate level study or class schedules. Please note that international students are typically restricted from working more than 20 hours per week during academic terms, and may not be eligible for some job opportunities that require U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.
