New U.S. CBP Automated I-94 System
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has begun its new automated I-94 arrival/departure record system. As international students, you will still receive an I-94. However, it will not be in the form of a small, white card stapled into your passport at the time of entry that many of you are used to. Instead, you will have an electronic I-94, which you will have to download and print from the CBP web site.
Please remember that ISSS needs a copy of any new documents you have been issued, including the I-94. Once you print out the new record, please provide a copy to ISSS.
