Dear UCSB Department Partners,
The Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) has some exciting news for departments who bring in scholars on an H-1B visa category! Starting from today, February 17, 2021, all H-1B requests will be submitted through UCSBGlobal where requests will be routed via email to all stakeholders who need to sign off on the request! (We encourage you to visit our information page if you missed prior announcements regarding our brand new platform, which went live on February 8, 2021.)
Please review the easy steps below in order to submit an H-1B request:
1) Before submitting a request for the scholar, please make sure they have a UCSB NetID, the scholar needs this to login to UCSBGlobal using Single Sign On.
2) If the scholar is new to UCSB, you will login to UCSBGlobal and add them using the "Add New Person" e-form. (Shown below). Make sure to select "H-1B" as their requested immigration status.
If the scholar is currently employed by UCSB then you can skip to the next step.
