  • H1b premium processing for a Higher Education Institution (H1 to F1 to H1)

    Hello All
    This may be a slightly unusual situation to be in. I was on H1b a few years ago with almost 3 years still left. And then I transitioned to F1, and now I'm on OPT. My current employer is a Higher Education Institution and is filing for my H1b premium processing. Until now I wasn't aware that these are non-cap institutions and hence can file for an H1b with premium processing.

    My question is, can they really? And will it be filed as fresh H1b visa or a transfer as I was on h1b earlier (through a for profit organization).

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    It should be a F-1 to H-1B trasfer which can be done even without OPT or graduation. I was an H-1B Cap exempt candidate last year, and my employer helped me with the legal documents and their lawyer managed to transfer me without issues. Now, I need to type my paper now and schedule the immigration consultation, because I want to get a master's at City Seminary of Sacramento. But I'm not sure if City Seminary of Sacramento is masters cap-eligible though.
