Student & Scholar Services » Information Regarding I-94

Traditionally, upon every arrival to the U.S. student’s and exchange visitors were issued an I-94 Arrival/Departure Record in the form of a white card stamped by a port of entry official. Now I-94 information is online. To access the information, the student or exchange visitor goes to https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/request.html and completes a brief form requiring information from the passport. Both the versions of the I-94 are valid. If after submitting the online form you get an error message, try again using a different format of your name. For example, enter it as it appears in your passport, then as it appears on the U.S. visa. Print a copy of the I-94 for your records. You will need it for a variety of uses, such as obtaining a driver’s license or Social Security card and you will need your I-94 to apply for OPT.


If the online information is incorrect or cannot be found, a student or exchange visitor can obtain a new I-94 at the local Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Deferred Inspection office.
