An April 28, 2011, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) policy memo provides interim guidance on H-1 B cap exemptions for non-profit entities "related to or affiliated with" an institution of higher education. The memo establishes that until further notice, USCIS will defer toprior determinations of cap exemption made on or after June 6, 2006, provided that petitioners can document that they were previously determined to be cap exempt. The interim procedure is meant to promote consistency in adjudications while USCIS reviews its policy on H-1 B cap exemptions.
