ESL Student during Winter at UMCImmigration Policies
ESL Students at the University of Minnesota, Crookston with an F-1 visa must maintain full-time student status by carrying a minimum of 20 instructional contact hours (i.e., four ESL courses) per semester.

International students who travel outside the U.S. on holiday or for other reasons must have their I-20 signed by the ESL Compliance Officer before leaving on their trip.  Therefore, students must plan well ahead of expected travel time for travel outside the U.S.

International students are allowed to work on campus part-time.  Campus jobs cannot begin until a student receives his/her social security card.  It takes about two weeks after arrival and completion of request to receive the social security document.  There are few campus jobs so it is best not to expect campus employment.  Immigration law does not allow foreign students to work off campus.
