Working on campus through F1 visa, didn’t receive EAD yet
I am working on campus as an F1 student. I applied for I-485 and I-130 and waiting for EAD. Can I continue to work on campus or should I quit my job until I get the EAD?

as long as you’re a student, maintaining your student status on F1, you can continue to work on-campus.

as long as you are still REGISTERED for this semester, 40 hours on-campus should be OK upon approval from your DSO. If your not sure, it’s not worth taking the risk for some cheap dollars against your status. So think wisely and talk to your DSO to make sure.

I was told by my DSO that USCIS does not allow me to work more than 20hrs a week despite taking only 9 credit hours.

hey Asem. as the other commented. we have to maintain our F1 student requirements until we have the GC / EAD in our hands. so also not changing names (well in my case I’m female…) because that is confusing for the I-20 form for school etc etc. f1 student requirements are 12 credits is seen as an international student (thanks to covid we are allowed to have more online classes, but 9 credits have to be in person of those) … f1 students are not allowed to work more than 20hr per week during the semester and are not allowed to work more than 40hrs per week on semester break … if you register for internships, you still have to get credit courses hours written otherwise it is only a JOB and that is against the requirements.
