University Sponsorship for U.S. Permanent Resident Status for Staff Positions

The University will not sponsor persons for permanent residence status for regular A-1, A-3, or A-4 positions.

To the degree that an exception to this policy is warranted, the written request for exception must be compelling and a department must have substantiated that the position is a “professional” one of a regular nature and have verified that there are no qualified U.S. workers available for the position. Exceptions must be approved by Human Resources, prior to any initiation of sponsorship activity.
