Permanent Labor Certification Letter 

Alumni pursuing a Permanent Labor Certification Letter may wish to obtain a skills verification letter as part of their alumni application materials. Permanent Labor Certification applicants may request a letter and our graduate advising team will serve as a point of contact.  

ECE has its own process, vetted by the University, for skills verification letter requests. We are not able to use a outside template letters.  

The entire process may take at least one week, and depending on the time of year, the letter may take up to one month. We understand that this can be an urgent request and will accommodate as best as we can. Your patience is very much appreciated. 

Permanent Labor Certification Letters can be requested HERE.  

Non-ECE Graduate Students

We are sometimes able to open a very limited number of courses to non-ECE Graduate students when seats are available. Those seats will become available on the first day each semester, please refer to the registration system to see what courses are available.
