Do I need transcripts for H1B application or is a degree certificate good? I did my bachelors degree in India.

Irving, TX |

I am doing a job in the USA on OPT. I didn't get my masters degree yet. So, I will be applying based on my bachelor's. Can I also attach my "Letter of Degree completion" with the application? (I will get my masters degree in either in May or June.)

  1. Its probably better to attach transcripts, BUT you can also send it as is and in the meantime order your transcripts. Then if USCIS asks for them through a RFE-Request for Additional Evidence, you have them ready.

  2. Transcripts are always the best way to go.

    Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case.

You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.

  3. You will need to provide your diploma, transcripts, and an educational evaluation will be required towards the foreign degree.
