U.S. institutions hire foreign nationals to serve as faculty, to conduct research and to hold staff positions. As the "global campus" initiative spreads across U.S. campuses, the international student population at those institutions will continue to swell. As a result, campus personnel must understand an alphabet soup of immigration laws and regulations, including F, J, and H-1B Visas.
This course is designed to help higher education attorneys and administrators understand some of the basic issues and options for admitting foreign students and scholars and employing foreign nationals. Join instructors Leigh Cole and Michael Pfahl as they lead participants through this four-part online course. Topics covered will include:
- Immigration definitions and concepts relevant to higher education
- Student-related immigration matters including F Visas and J Visas
- Employment-related immigration matters including F, J and H-1B employees
- Permanent residency
- Overview of employer sanctions
- Essential operations for basic immigration processing
- Emerging issues
The course is a blend of self-study and instructor-facilitated learning. Participants can access materials 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each weekly module features a narrated PowerPoint presentation (like a pre-recorded webinar), self-assessments, and extensive resources. Registration includes two live webinars with the course instructors (recordings are made available to those who are not able to attend live). The course is informative and convenient.
The course costs $399 for all participants. Participants at member institutions are eligible for a $100 discount. Register today!
