I-140 RFE on University accreditation

Recommended Posts

Today received RFE to provide required documentation to support my university was having accreditation at the time of my study and completion.

My univeristy is JNTU Hyderabad, completed B Tech in Computer Science and Engineering in 2003.

RFE indicated that as per their records JNTU is having accreditation from 2008 but not before.

1) What should I do in this case?

USCIS also requested for transcripts. Can I just send them the copy of my marks memo? Does it need to come from University with attestation?

Please see the attached screenshot for the exact wording from the RFE requesting for the information, kindly help.

If they were not accredited you can not use the degree for the I-140 (nor for the H1.)

If they were accredited, they should be able to provide you with documentation.

JNTU is a accredited university and I'm sure thousands of students must be from JNTU hyderabad seeking I-140 approval. My father went to JNTU today and requested for accreditation letter, but they no one requested them before such letter, is it true?

May be I need to reach my attorney to provide me a template, then my dad can request the same letter from either VC or registrar confirming the JNTU accreditation during 1999-2003 of my study years. Does it sounds like a good plan to anyone?

Thanks all for your help.

I gradulated from JNTU in 2003 and all went well for me . Not submitting transcripts initially triggered all this. JNTU was a single entity whic is in existence from way before 1990’s but university garnts commission accredited JNTU Hyderabad as a seperate entity in 2008 and may be USCIS referring to this . 

Your attorney is the best person to decide what needs to be submitted.

 

Thanks

I am sure there are thousands of immigrants who used this Univ's credentials for immigration benefits in the past. However, in this case USCIS officer either looked into the universities accreditation history in depth and got confused or their systems are not updated.  And as per the RFE there is a confusion in the officers mind. The best way to respond to RFE will be based on the in depth review of the accreditation history by the attorneys and procure the required documents.
