F-1 students' primary purpose in the United States is to engage in full-time study. However, at various times while pursuing your degree, students have the opportunity to engage in authorized employment.
If you are interested in pursuing employment, contact your International Student Advisor to set up an appointment by e-mail MyStatus@liberty.edu or phone (434) 592-4118.
The only positions for International Students are Work Assistant, International Student, and Graduate Assistant positions. These positions are limited to 18 hours per week, typically starting at minimum wage.

If you receive a job offer, you will need to obtain a Social Security Card.
By enrolling in an internship or independent study course, international students can receive Curricular Practical Training (CPT) during their studies. CPT provides off-campus work authorization for international students to gain field experience in their major during the school year and summer.
Students should schedule an appointment with their International Student Advisor to find out more about CPT options.
