This brief argues that USCIS may not deny a petition for classification under the employment-based third preference (EB-3) immigrant visa category as a skilled worker classification simply because the person does not possess an actual bachelor’s degree. Rather, a person may qualify for EB-3 classification by demonstrating that she possesses the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree based on the combination of education and employment experience.
