Permanent Residence allows a foreign citizen to live and work permanently in the U.S. while retaining home country citizenship.
ISSS works with new tenure-track and tenured faculty members and their departments to apply for permanent residence.
There are several paths to employment-based Permanent Residence.
Departments and employees often use outside counsel to prepare and file employment-based petitions.
Follow these steps after changing from a nonimmigrant status, such as F-1 or J-1, to Permanent Residence.
