The department is responsible for the costs associated with any required translations, evaluation of foreign academic credentials, and domestic and international courier fees.
USCIS filing fees must be covered by the sponsoring department and are as follows:
- $500 anti-fraud fee for all new petitions (petitions for initial H-1B employment sponsored by Dartmouth)
- $460 petition filing fee required for all H-1B petitions
- $1225 premium processing fee (Note: On October 1, 2018 the USCIS Premium Processing fee will increase to $1410)
The department is responsible for requesting a separate check for each filing fee. Checks should be made payable to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. They need to be picked up in person at Accounts Payable and sent to OVIS for submission with the H-1B petition filing.
