I-94 Document

I-94 issued upon admission to the US

Upon admission to the United States, the port of entry officer will place an admission stamp in your passport, indicating the place of admission, date of admission, class of admission, and the expiration date of your immigration status. The officer will create an electronic record which will immediately be available on this website: www.cbp.gov/I94. You will be able to access the website and to print out the electronic record by providing your biographic information and passport and entry information. This printout is your paper I-94. You should print out this I-94 as soon as you arrive at LSU, it will be required by government agencies when you apply for benefits such as a driver’s license, social security number and to prove your employment eligibility.

The Form I-94 is a very important document, it is proof of:

  • Your lawful admission to the United States;
  • Your class of admission i.e.: F1 student status;
  • The date you entered the United States; and
  • The authorized period of stay i.e., "Admitted until: D/S" or duration of status.
