Part-time master degree while on H1-b, H1-B transfer to a different job field & keep I-140 priority date?


Recommended Posts

I hold a masters in Pharmaceuticals from the U.S and I am currently on H1-B visa working for a pharma company (company A).

1. Can I do a part-time computer science master degree while working as a full time H1-B employee?

2. After I get a degree in computer science, is it possible to get my H1-B transferred from pharma company to a new tech company ( which is a different job field/ job profile from my current job) in future when I find a tech job, without going through the lottery?

3. I have my I-140 approved from company A. Can I retain my priority date if I change to a new tech company of completely different job field/ profile?
