EB-2 or EB-3 classification flows from the minimum requirements of an offered job, not the educational and experiential profile of the intending immigrant.


A job is classifiable in the EB-2 category if it requires, as a minimum, either a single source Master's degree or a single source Bachelor's degree plus five years of progressively responsible experience as a requirement for the job.


Individuals with accredited Indian Master's degrees earned after completion of a three year Indian Bachelor's degree may be able to establish to the satisfaction of the USCIS that they have earned the single source equivalent of a US Bachelor's degree. If they have five years of progressively responsible experience after earning the Indian Master's degree (so long as it is considered the single source equivalent of a U.S. Bachelor's degree) they may be able to qualify for an offered job in the EB-2 category, i.e. one which requires an advanced degree or its equivalent as a minimum qualification for entry into the position.
