Job Offer Letters

If your final candidate is a foreign national, it is critical that the terms of the job offer and position be written clearly and concisely, and use wording that will not be misinterpreted by either USCIS or the final candidate.

All U-M offer letters are required to use consistent wording to specify employment eligibility and regulatory immigration requirements. Effective 6/12/24, the wording approved by the International Center, Office of the Vice-President and General Counsel, University Human Resources, and Academic Human Resources, is as follows:

“This offer is contingent on meeting all employment authorization and applicable regulatory immigration requirements before your start date. In addition, your continued employment with the University requires you to maintain valid employment authorization and to comply with all applicable immigration regulations."

If you have any questions about the appropriate use of wording used in your job offer letter, please contact FSIS.
