  • New I-94 
    If you have entered the U.S. after 5/20/2013 then in place of the I-94 card you have received previously you will now receive an admission stamp in your passport. This stamp DOES NOT serve as your new I-94, however, you can use this to retrieve you admission number. It is now YOUR responsibility to go online and print out your I-94. You can do this by following the link provided here and filling out the information indicated on the sheet. After printing your new I-94 remember to bring it to the International Student Services Office so we can make a copy of it. If you have any questions about this please feel free to stop in and ask us.
