EB3 to EB2 porting and online masters degree

Recommended Posts


I have I140 approved under EB3 category. I have 3 years degree from India. To qualify for EB2 I need a masters degree. I found Western Governors University that offers Online MS. This university is accredited by "northwest commission on colleges and universities" which is accredited by US School of Education.

My question is if I change job to a position that requires masters degree, will online MS will be accepted by USCIS for EB2 approval.

Was your education found equivalent to a 4 year US Degree for the EB3 GC ?

No, I got EB3 as skilled worker. My 3 years bachelors degree was evaluated as Associate degree. However I have CA completed from India which which is not relevant for USCIS but Bachelors degree in India with CA completed constitutes equivalent to Bachelors degree in USA and is good enough for taking masters course.
