Non-Immigrants Purpose at Fordham- 
To Work as Instructional Staff

Fordham's OIS offers visa assistance for full-time non-immigrant instructional staff.  Though the most common visa type offered is the H1B visa, the decision on which visa to offer is ultimately based on a variety of factors.

Things to consider:
  •   If you are hiring a foreign national, please let OIS know as soon as possible.
  •   OIS cannot start the petition process until a contract signed by all parties is received.
  •   A decision from USCIS using normal H1B petition processing can take up to several months.  However, expedited petition processing is available at an additional cost if necessary.

Fordham University does not offer work visa assistance for part-time instructors.  However, the part-time instructor may be able to obtain work authorization for themselves.  These situations vary, so please notify the OIS for guidance if you have any questions of concerns.
