All responses above are incorrect.   It is true that you need a 4 year Bachelor for H1  but  ,  each year of shortfall can be covered by 3 year of experience as long as Education and experience are in related field.

4 years of experience can be used along with the 3 Year Bachelors as far as H1 is concerned to make it 4 years. Obviously not true for Employment based Immigration.

The rule is that each 3 years of relevant experience in the field of study can be used to replace 1 year missing towards the degree. So, 12 years experience would be needed if the person never finished one year of college.

This applies to the H1 only.

For employment-based immigration, there is EB3-Other, which allows for less than 4 years of college, but it is rather hard to get because the pool of Americans qualified for the job is of course larger than, say, if the job requires a 4-year bachelor degree or even an advanced degree.

Is it? I apologize if I am wrong and for misleading OP.
