USCIS Completes H-1B Random Selection Process

USCIS announced on April 14th 2015 that they had completed the random selection process for the 2016 H-1B CAP. USCIS stated that they had received 233, 000 H-1B petition towards 65, 000 regular  H-1B and 20, 000 advanced degree slots available. USCIS used a computer generated random selection process to award the H-1B to the 2016 petitioners. USCIS will reject and return all unselected petitions with their filing fees, unless the petition is found to be a duplicate filing. USCIS performed the selection process for the advanced degree exemption first. All unselected advanced degree petitions then became part of the random selection process for the 65,000 limit.
