Application Deadlines

We have established the policy for the submission of applications to OISS for processing. This new policy is to ensure the timely filing of WSU non-immigrant applications with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, State Department and Labor Department to avoid late filings that can be detrimental to the scholar's immigration status.

  •  H-1B Applications: no earlier than 6 months in advance but no later than 4 months prior to the status expiration date/start of employment
  • E-3 Applications: no earlier than 6 months in advance but no later than 4 months prior to the status expiration date/start of employment
  • O-1 Applications: no earlier than 6 months in advance, but no later than 4 months prior to the status expiration date/start of employment
