Default How does H1B from University work?

Hi,

I am hired by a State University. I wonder how does this work differently than working in a company.

My OPT is valid till mid of July, if I file H1B, how long it'll take? because I know this is difference case since universities are "quota exempt" organizations

if this is approved, do I still have to wait until October?

If I have it after my opt expires, can I still work?

Thank you for your help.

the h1 processing time is normal as other h1b .. premium would take about 15 days ..
if it approved your start date will be start date specified in the application ( you dont have to wait till oct1 )

I have been working for a state univ for the past 8 yrs. Only important matter which you need to know about univ. H1b is that it will be tough to change jobs if you decide to as you'll have to wait for visa quota to open on every Apr and prospective employer will have wait till Oct of that year for you to start.

The case will be different if you are able to file your GC in EB1
