VISA & Work Study


  • International students and scholars should always consult international service advisors at the Office of Global Learning before leaving the U.S. to ensure students can return to the U.S. without incident. For example, if students have a single-entry U.S. visa and they plan to return to the U.S., they will need to obtain a new U.S. visa while they are abroad. 
  • The most common visa statuses at Cornell are F-1 and J-1 for students and J-1 and H-1B for faculty and staff.

Work Study

  • Students can work as a student employee as long as they remain registered full-time in a degree-granting program, enrolled in classes, and have no registration, bursar, or other holds on their Cornell record. Cornell does not place students in jobs. 
  • If students receive financial aid and are either a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen with financial need, they may also be eligible for Federal Work-Study (FWS). 
  • Work-study does not mean students get paid to study, but rather they work in real jobs and earn real money that is students to use toward covering their educational expenses. As a work-study student, the amount they are expected to earn from working is listed in their financial aid package.

Career and Placement after Course

Cornell graduates are highly successful after graduation. The most recent survey of graduating seniors shows that about 54% of respondents entered the workforce; about 30% pursued graduate or professional studies; and the remainder undertook other endeavors including, volunteering, travel, etc. Those who were employed took positions in diverse sectors—about 80% in business/industry and 20% in public-sector and nonprofit fields.
