Employment & Internships

If you are interested in working or interning during or after your academic program at Edgewood College, review the information below pertaining to your visa type.

Before beginning a paid job or internship in the U.S. students must apply for a U.S. Social Security Number.

Social Security Numbers

Social Security numbers are assigned to people who are authorized to work in the United States. They are used to report wages to the U.S. government and to determine eligibility for Social Security benefits.

You can only apply for a Social Security number if you have an on-campus job or have authorization to work off-campus.

For details on the application process, review the handout: How to Apply for a Social Security Number.
For more information, you can read the document Social Security Number for Noncitizens or contact the local Social Security Administration office:
