Obtaining Original Receipt and Approval Notes

Obtaining Original USCIS Notices

Until September 2011, USCIS sent only courtesy copies of the various USCIS Receipt and Approval Notices to the University for petitions that were filed on behalf of the University. However, due to a recent change in the CLAIMS system, the original notices, rather than the courtesy copies, are now sent to the employer.

To obtain an original notice, please send e-mail with the following information/content to Reshecoa Flanders (shecoa@uchicago.edu) in the Office of International Affairs:

  • Your name and role in the case
  • Name and DOB of beneficiary
  • Fed-Ex Airbill (as attachment)
