Sponsoring International Faculty & Researchers for U.S. Permanent Residency
UT Austin departments may sponsor permanent researchers and faculty members for US Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status (i.e. a “green card”). This course will explain the LPR process and provide other important information for departments, including the common routes to permanent residence, the UT Austin job titles eligible for sponsorship, timing issues associated with the process, and the various roles involved (institution, department, International Student and Scholar Services and the employee). It will also review the relevant ISSS forms, describe other necessary documentation, and explain the process for family members.
