Eligibility to apply for H1B-Masters quota

Hi Team,
I m currently on L1B visa and pursuing 100% Online - Masters. Does Online Masters is eligible for H1B - Master quota. OR Do i need to complete few courses On campus to be eligible for H1B - Masters quota?

Thanks in advance

I dont think online or in-person matters. For you to qualify for the H-1B master’s degree exemption, there are two main requirements:

  1. You must have earned a master’s degree from an institution that is accredited by a nationally recognized agency.
  2. The U.S. institution should also be public or non-profit in nature.

Some formally recognized accrediting organizations include:

  • Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges
  • Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training
  • Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools.

Make sure the college/university that you earn the masters from is accredited.
