12 years IT experience eligible for h1b ?

I have done my Be computer science in 1998 in a private univercity not recognized by UGC. I saw few post answered saying unreconginzed univercities education is not valid for H1b visa.

I have 12.5 years of IT expereince. In this case, is my IT experience is valid to apply H1b ?

I saw few websites mentioned 12 points system.

You must have ONE of the following

  1. A Bachelor’s degree or Masters Degree (or the foreign equivalent degree from your Country), OR
  2. 12 years work experience, OR
  3. A mix of further education + work experience

The general H1B visa qualification rule is:

  • for every 1 year of studies at University / College = 3 points
  • for every 1 year of work experience = 1 point

12 points in ‘total’ are required to qualify for the H1B visa program. hope this helps.

Questions :

  1. Is this 12 points system is valid in my case ?

  2. am i eligible to study a Master Degree in US with my current education Be with 12 years of IT experince. ?

Please help me on this

Thanks in advance.
