H-1B & Post-Graduation Visa Alternatives

Each Fall and Spring semester, OGS hosts an event featuring McCandlish Holton PC to review H-1B & Post-Graduate Visa Alternatives (PDF)*. IS Advisor expertise is in F-1 and J-1 regulations, therefore, OGS is unable to advise regarding other statuses. For more information and context to this resource, you may inquire with McCandlish Holton PC regarding a consultation and any associated fees 

A handout of immigration attorneys is available on the OGS Legal Resources page.
