    Economic Hardship


Severe Economic Hardship is work authorization that allows for off-campus employment if jobs on-campus are either unavailable or insufficient, and a student is facing hardship that is caused by unforeseen circumstances beyond the student's control. Authorization is granted by USCIS for periods of up to one year at a time, and may be renewed.

To apply for Economic Hardship you must schedule an appointment with the ISS office and our advisors will help you prepare a packet of material to mail to USCIS. Conditions for eligibility as well as the required documents can be found on the ISS Economic Hardship Employment PDF below.
