The F-1 Visa also known as Academic/Student visa allows one to enter the United States as a full-time student at an accredited college, university, seminary, conservatory, academic high school, elementary school, or other academic institutions or in a language training program.
To qualify, one must be enrolled in a program or course of study that provides a degree such as, diploma, or certificate, upon successful completion. Of course the school must be authorized by the U.S. government to accept international students.
For F-1 students any off-campus employment must be related to their area of study and must be authorized prior to starting any work by the Designated School Official (the person authorized to maintain the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS)) and USCIS.
