Hi,

2)Can we do part time Phd on university H1 working with university?
3)Is there any extension after 6 yrs for university H1?
4)Can one apply for Greencard on this University H1?
5) If we have to change from University H1 to Industry H1,is that also through normal regular H1 cap lottery method of selection?

The only difference is if you work for the univ on a cap exempt H1b and than transfer to industry on a cap H1b then you would have to go through the lottery or masters quoto whatever applies...however there is a loophole in this and I have read somewhere that when you apply for a transfer for a cap exempt to cap subject USCIS have goofed up and let it go through
