Site Inspections by USCIS
You should be aware that, at any time, the University may be subject to inspection/audit by officers of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) with regard to any petition filed by the University.  These site visits can be conducted with no prior announcement. Therefore, IFSS may not be able to give you advance notice of when one might occur.  Please be assured that these inspections are random and routine, and the fact that a petition filed on your behalf has been selected for review does NOT mean that you or the University are under suspicion.  When a site visit occurs, the officer will generally contact IFSS to verify information provided by us on the petition, in addition to requesting to speak with the employee named as the beneficiary of the petition.  The officer may ask to see the employee's office or work area (if the visit is in person) and may take photographs of the employee's work area and the hiring unit.
