With few exceptions (interns, muscians and artists), the individual must hold at least a bachelor's degree to be eligible for sponsorship. The Reves Center staff will advise on the most appropriate visa type for a particular position.

*Note: EADs (Employment Authorization Cards) are not obtained through university sponsorship. They are obtained directly by the employee from Immigration through processes such as OPT (Optional Practical Training for F-1 students), dependent work authorization (e.g. J-2), and adjustment of status.

**For H-1B and Permanent Residency sponsorship, the position must be full-time.
