International students who have F-1 (student) visa status may apply for on-campus employment opportunities at USC Upstate. A Social Security Number is not required to apply for an on-campus job. If the student is offered a position, the campus SEVIS coordinator will confirm employment eligibility and will issue a letter to present to the Social Security Administration to apply for a Social Security Number. The Social Security Administration does not issue Social Security Numbers for F-1 visa holders without verification of employment from USC Upstate.
