There are many situations in which H1B candidates will file with education from an unaccredited institution. Plenty of academically competitive institutions of education that are held in high regard by the professional fields their students are trained in, that provide students with high quality education that are simply not government accredited.  Graduates of programs from…

Did you or your employee or client file with a credential evaluation only to receive an RFE anyway? The problem is, many credential evaluators don’t understand how to work with visa cases. Think back to when you ordered. Did they ask about the job? Did they ask about the visa? Do they regularly work with…

At TheDegreePeople.com, we see a lot of seemingly complicated H1B RFEs this time of year.  Clients come in with RFEs that can be virtually impossible to answer by their own instructions.  This is a frustrating time of year, especially given that CIS approval trends change from year to year. If you or your employee or…

One of the very most common H1B RFE triggers is a 3-year bachelor’s degree with no credential evaluation, or with the wrong kind of credential evaluation. Many H1B candidates come to the United States to work missing a fourth year of education. The Indian 3-year Bachelor’s degree is the most common 3-year degree to trigger…

RFE season is here for cap-subject H1B candidates! The past ten years has seen a massive spike in RFEs with around one quarter of all petitions receiving on, so don’t be surprised if one arrives.

It’s RFE season and we project frequency trends will not change. In the past few years, around one of every four H1B petitions selected in the lottery received an RFE. When your RFE or your employee or client’s RFE arrives, sit down with your team and read it over and determined who dropped the ball….

Welcome to the 2017 RFE season for cap-subject H1B candidates. The RFEs are in the mail and if this year reflects the years past, we expect one of every four H1B petitions to receive an RFE. If you or your employee or client receives an RFE, don’t panic! This is frustrating, but not the end…

The answer is Computer Systems Analysis and the reason it is such an RFE magnet is not the fault of the job itself. While this is a common H1B job, Computer Systems Analysis is a very rare degree. US Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Systems Analysis is only available at universities with self-designed degrees. In India,…

Evaluations for college study are fairly simple. Any skilled credential evaluator knows how to do that. But those evaluations will often NOT work for the H1B visa, and evaluations that work for the H1B visa will often NOT work for I140. For example, let’s take a look at the three-year degree.
