  • RFE for education evaluation with letter from Dean

    I have BE degree in Computer Science(4 years degree) from India and am working in IT field for more than 9 years. My degree and my experience match the job I’m doing.

    New H1B RFE is requesting below details –
    1) “With the evaluation, the official must include a letter from the dean or provost ofthe official’s affiliated educational institution, stating that the evaluating official has the authority to grant college level credit.
    2) The dean or provost must also state in the letter whether the affiliated educational institution has a program for granting credit.
    What kind of evaluation/approach would be needed for covering above two requirements.

    RFE also states that an acceptable evaluations should:
    1. Provide a detailed explanation of the material evaluated rather than a simple conclusory stalement
    Is this course-by-course evaluation? What kind of evaluation is this?
    2. Briefly state the qualifications and experience of the evaluator providing the opinion.
    Will the evaluation have this information?

    My attorney’s response is –
    This RFE is requesting for education evaluation from a college or university professor or official, such as an admission official.
    Ask your education evaluation service and they will get one of their college professor’s specialist to do it for you.
    Also, he asked me to send detailed experience letter showing I have at least 3 years of software development experience.

    But looks like I need to do more than what attorney suggested. Has anyone faced this RFE before and what is the best approach?

    RFE is clearly asking for an educational evaluation to prove that your foreign education is equivalent BS in U.S. When an employer files H1B for a candidate, the first thing they will do is to get the foreign education evaluated by a professor from a reputed U.S university. If you get the right professor, he/she would know the format and the wording that USCIS would look for. If your employer already has H1B worker, they will know how to get this. Course by course evaluation is not needed for immigration purpose. That is only needed if you are seeking admission to a U.S university in F1 status.

    Also, including your complete B.E syllabus while responding to the RFE and while requesting the educational evaluation will help.

      But the RFE is asking for evaluation from an official who has authority to grant college-level credit for training and/or experience. It's also asking for letter from Dean.
      Education evaluation is not sufficient as it does not cover both the above requirements. What is the approach for this now?

        That is called as "Expert Opinion Letter". You need both the education evaluation and expert opinion letter from a dean. This isn't new. The employer/attorney should know how to get this.

          My employer is just requesting for education evaluation saying I have 4 years bachelors degree in computer science and hence expert opinion letter is not needed. I'm really worried now as usual approach to such RFE is education evaluation + expert letter. I'm trying to convince my employer but its difficult. Is just education evaluation enough in my case?What are chances of approval now?

            Hard to predict. If the RFE specifically asks for an expert opinion letter, then that is what is needed. Educational evaluation alone won't be enough. USCIS has rejected a lot of cases like this. It is advisable to get both education evaluation and an expert opinion letter. I think your employer is trying to save some money by not going for the expert opinion letter. You can take care of that expense if you can.

              Now I think I'll also need an education evaluation in future as I want to work abroad. In college, I study English literature, write poetry and dream of becoming a published author one day and want to find a job as a journalist. A college education is hard but I do my best. I'm not incredibly lucky with my college task and papers sometimes as it's not a creative part I like. I recently needed to write a term paper. I realized that I could not cope with it, and I found the writing service more info to buy term paper from. I also had to go here to find useful information regarding writing term papers. I'm sure that in my future job, my creative skills would be much more appreciated than my grades. I hope, I'm not wrong.
