Colby students, regardless of financial need, have the opportunity to
work on campus, and most do. There are jobs all over the campus, from
the dining halls to the Cotter Union, libraries, Admissions Office,
Athletic Department, etc. International students are allowed to work on
campus from the very beginning of the first semester.
INS regulations do not allow international students to work off campus except through a very complicated procedure. Very few international students have been able to find employment this way, but if you want more information on this program, see the ISA. Please keep in mind that since your only authorized employer is Colby College, you may not work for any other employer, even if that individual is an employee of Colby.
During the summer Colby offers a Summer Enrichment Program for students who wish to stay on campus and work. There are only about 50 of these jobs available each summer. You may apply for one of these positions provided you will attend Colby the following semester. On-campus housing and a dining hall may be available for a small fee; this will depend upon the position.
