Default 485 pending over 180, question about switching job

my 140 approved and 485 pending over 180 days. now plan to switch job from a big IT company to university (not study, but work in one of dept at Univ), title and job duty will be similar as before, but salary will be lower due to job industry and location changed. does this impact my 485 final approval? thanks

No problem. AC21 doesn't care about location change and some salary change won't raise any red flag. Since your title and job duties are the same, you're all set.

Check with the prevailing wage for your new location that matches your job title/description. It needs to be close to that.

The salary needs to be 'at' or 'above' the prevailing wage, not 'close'
