An I-94 is an arrival and departure record that is issued by a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer, in either paper or electronic format, to foreign visitors entering the United States.
If a visitor departs by a commercial air or sea carrier (airlines or cruise ships), their departure from the U.S. can be independently verified and it is not necessary to take any further action, although holding on to the outbound (from the U.S.) boarding pass - if they still have it - can help facilitate reentry when coming back to the United States.
If a visitor departs by land and has a paper form I-94, the I-94 must be turned in to a CBP officer at a land border when exiting the U.S. If it is not turned in to a CBP officer at the land border, the visitor will be considered an "overstay" and they may be denied entry when they attempt to reenter the United States in the future.
For more information on the I-94 automation process, visit CBP.gov.
Upon reentry, always check the admission stamp in your passport and electronic I-94. Make sure your I-94 accurately indicates your F-1 D/S or J-1 D/S status, the date and location of your arrival.
If your I-94 is not marked with a D/S or Duration of Status or your I-94 cannot be retrieved from CBP.gov, you must immediately contact ASU ISSC.
Some students may receive a paper I-94 card from the Port of Entry or Form I-515. You must contact the ISSC immediately before the date indicated on your I-94. Failure to do so will jeopardize your immigration status.
