Initiating a Permanent Residency Application

Routes to Permanent Residence Via Employment at UT Austin

UT Austin will seek U.S. lawful permanent resident status for professors (all ranks) and "permanent" researchers.
The process for obtaining employment-based permanent residence at UT Austin is a collaborative one. In careful consultation with the academic department and the faculty/researcher, ISSS will coordinate the immigrant petition submitted by UT Austin. Outside attorneys may not represent UT Austin for the labor certification process or the immigrant petition.
