Requests for Evidence (RFEs) for H-1B applicants often arise when the education obtained is from an unaccredited institution. 

Although many legitimate institutions lack accreditation for various reasons, such as being new or nontraditional, this can hinder the recognition of the educational value according to U.S. academic standards. For H-1B applicants with degrees from unaccredited colleges, submitting a petition without a credential evaluation often leads to an RFE.

To mitigate this, it’s essential to demonstrate that the applicant’s education is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree or higher. This is typically achieved through a credential evaluation that incorporates a work experience conversion to compensate for the missing years of accredited education. USCIS acknowledges that three years of progressive work experience, characterized by promotions and increased responsibility, is equivalent to one year of college credit in the job’s field. 

At CCI, professionals work with professors authorized to convert work experience into college credit for these evaluations. By incorporating work experience, the evaluations effectively account for the academic deficit caused by the lack of accredited education. 

CCI offers services to assist individuals, employees, or clients in addressing or preempting an RFE, promising a high success rate and providing free reviews and consultations for cases.
