The International and Postdoctoral Services Office (IPSO) provides processing for J-1, H-1B, TN, E-3 and O-1 sponsorship by Augusta University. The decision to host/sponsor a scholar for any status rests with the college/department. Colleges/Departments, however, may not be aware of current requirements and processing timelines for attaining nonimmigrant status. For this reason, if you and your college/department are considering a change of immigration status, it is best to confirm that IPSO personnel have assessed your situation before a final determination is made on a start date as well as position title and salary in employment circumstances.
IPSO personnel take pride in customer service. We strive to consider both the College’s/department's interests and candidate's career path in assessing immigration options. We urge applicants to consider that each person's immigration circumstances are unique and what may be the case for friends and colleagues may not apply to your situation.
