O-1 Extraordinary Ability Workers
This category is meant for individuals with extraordinary ability in the areas of science, art, education, business, or athletics. This is not a common status used to bring employees to the University. O-1 petitions are coordinated through the ISO and prepared by an immigration attorney; the hiring department pays the legal and filing fees associated with the submission.
To discuss a potential or current O-1 petition, please contact the ISO Scholar Services staff with questions or to make an appointment.
