H-1B Frequently Asked Questions at UT


Inlimited instances the University will sponsor current employees for a permanent working visa commonly called a greencard. Generally employees must be employed as faculty or post doctoral researchers. The pursuit of PR status must be sponsored by the Dean of the college and the college is responsible for paying any and all fees associated ($5,000 - $8,000).

Note: Generally an applicant must be currently on an H-1B visa through UT AND must be able to maintain status during the application period. There are no guarantees of PR sponsorship by UT upon offer of employment and no guarantees of PR applicant success.
