H1B Master's cap eligibility

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Is an MS (STEM eligible) program from unversities/colleges that are regionally accredited by Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) eligible to apply H1B under Master's cap?

I am planning to take admission in Hood College, Maryland which has MSCHE accreditation. However, I want to make sure that after completion of program, H1B application under Master's cap won't be an issue.


Thank you for your time in advance!

Only degrees from accredited, public or non-profit private universities qualify for the H1 Master's quota.

The institution has accreditation, it is a private institution. Their website doesn't clearly say if they are non-profit, so you'd have to check that with them.
