Students may use their work authorization (or a valid ITIN to be paid as an independent contractor. If student has an ITIN, make sure it has not expired. Find information on ITIN expiration and renewal here: IRS. If student has work authorization, check status to ensure it has not expired. Work authorizations through DACA are renewable every two years. If you need to renew your DACA, contact the Undocumented Student Resource Center (USRC)


Not sure if you have an ITIN? Consult with your parents - If they  claimed you as a dependent on their income taxes, you may already have one.  If you do not have an ITIN, you can learn how to obtain one through the ITIN Guide, IRS or the Independent Contractor Forms video from Immigrants Rising.

International Students

International students (F-1 visa holders) must obtain work authorization, such as CPT, OPT or Economic Hardship, before beginning any off-campus employment.


If you are a current international student at CSUEB, please confirm your off campus employment eligibility with CIE before applying for internships. If you have already completed your program of study, you must have OPT approval and your internship must meet the OPT requirements. Contact the CIE: Center for International Education for more information.
