Immigration Services for University Employees

The Office of the General Counsel currently coordinates the petitioning for H, J, TN and other non-immigrant visas needed by international faculty and professionals for employment at the University of Notre Dame. Our office also provides employment-based permanent residency petitioning for certain employees of the University upon approval of the employing department. The purpose of this site is to provide educational materials, immigration updates, and – most importantly – access to the tools and forms used by the Office to assist the University in its immigration needs. Our office also coordinates with the International Student Services and Activities Office on policy and regulatory interpretations for student immigration matters.

To initiate Immigration Services please submit the request form below to the Office of General Counsel. Upon determination of the appropriate immigration status required, departments will be notified.
