- UTSA Policy
- Paying Nonresident Employees
International Faculty and Scholar Services will assist in processing applications for faculty members who wish to obtain a Green Card, if they qualify under the category of Outstanding Professor or Researcher or Special Handling.
There can be exceptions to the policy: When it is determined to be in the best interest of UTSA, extensions may be filed for employees already employed at UTSA and hired in H-1B status. These requests must be approved by the dean of the college and the appropriate vice president (in coordination with the provost).
Special Handling is available to teaching staff within 18 months of the day they were officially offered the job.
Use the Foreign National Hire Visa Chart to determine if you may be eligible for immigration/Green Card status.
