A June 6, 2006 USCIS memo transmitted updates to the Adjudicator’s Field Manual that provide new guidance on how the terms “permanent” and “tenure or tenure-track” should be interpreted by USCIS adjudicators. The guidance was needed because different Service Centers were interpreting these terms inconsistently. The new guidance takes into account current hiring and business practices at colleges and universities. AMDOC#: 200607001
