Does graduate assistantship count for employment??

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am currently a F1 student married to a US citizen. I work as a teaching/Research assistant($22.5k/year). It is not

a full time job(20 hours/week), and F1 visa only allows 20 hrs/week on campus. I am not sure

(1) if the assistantship should be report as an employment experience in form G325A?

Another question is, I think, my income, my assistantship, should not be counted as part of income resource for

the affidavit of support? right? Please correct me if I am missing anything...

Best :P

Yes, it is employment. You get paid and you do work. That's called a job ;)

You don't have to add it to the affidavit of support if your spouse otherwise qualifies.
