Sponsors

Many international students find sponsors through their own personal contacts and/or various organizations to help fund their tuition and living expenses. We encourage you to look for financial sources such as these.

On-Campus Work

International students are only allowed to work for Fresno Pacific University. Openings for on-campus jobs are advertised in the Career Services Center, not on-line. Employment is limited and NOT guaranteed. Each student must apply and possibly interview to get a job. Students should not plan to make a lot of money from on-campus work. Minimum wage is $11.00 per hour. Students may work up to 20 hours a week while school is in session and 40 hours a week during vacations.

English language students are likely to get jobs in the cafeteria, gardening, cleaning or maintenance.
