Ph.D. Students:

Unless otherwise noted in the letter of admission, students are expected to register on a full-time basis. Part-time employment at the University or elsewhere should not conflict with the obligations of the degree program or interfere with academic progress. Part-time employment beyond an average of ten hours per week requires permission of the director of graduate studies in consultation with the appropriate associate dean.

International students are limited to 20 hours of on-campus employment while school is in session. On-campus employment includes required teaching assignments and other optional on-campus employment. Students holding TF Level 10 appointments in most instances would be eligible for an additional 10 hours per week; students holding TF Level 20 appointments in most instances cannot hold another on-campus position. Check with OISS if you have a question. J-1 students sponsored by Yale must also report in advance any employment opportunity to the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS).
