Resources for U.S. Employers
The purpose of this site is to provide U.S. Employers with resources to ease hiring of, and ensure immigration compliance, for international students from Stony Brook University for internships or post graduate work.
The precedent for international students to obtain temporary U.S. work authorization is longstanding and well-established, and the application process is straightforward. Obtaining permission for F-1 and J-1 international students to work in the U.S. is not as difficult (or costly) as many employers think! Most students are eligible to accept employment under Practical Training (Academic, Curricular, Optional) and H-1B Temporary Worker status. Visa and Immigration Services (VIS) works with students to facilitate employment authorization, which is ultimately issued by VIS or the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
