4) Foreign Student FICA exempt—An individual attending Utah Valley University on an F1 visa, maintaining 12 credits, and working on the student pay schedule not exceeding 20 hours of work per week as mandated by INS policy, except during his or her designated vacation, or during a semester off.
4.3.2 Timing of Determination of Student Status
184.108.40.206 Determination of student status will be made at the end of the drop-add period; the status may be adjusted after that period.

Student performed work that is exempt from FICA during all pay periods of a month or less and that falls wholly or partially within the academic term is eligible for the FICA exemption (U.S. Department of Education regulation [34CRF674.2] [RP 98-16]).
