I'm an international student. Can I still work while I am a student?
Students with F and J visas are allowed to work on campus up to 20 hours per week when school is in session and more during breaks, but to work you must obtain authorization. Interested? Check out our Employment Options.
I am worried about being homesick without family nearby.
A lot of students - international or domestic - worry about homesickness. Thankfully Lexington is a close-knit community where homesickness is rare. International students can also apply to get a host family for certain family activities and help easing into American life. Find out more about the Host Family Program - and how to apply - here!
Are there any special forms I have to worry about?
