It has come to our attention that there has been an increase in fraud attempts that target U.S. non-residents and their family members, posing as USCIS or other government authority, often over the phone. Please remember that the ISRC, IRS and U.S. immigration officials will NEVER request any sensitive information from you over the phone. If you have any questions, please contact an International Student Advisor.

Automation of I-94 Card
Several U.S. ports of entry (air and sea) are no longer providing the traditional paper I-94 card. In lieu of the paper card, entrants are receiving a passport stamp. You may access and print your I-94 information by visiting www.cbp.gov/i94. We highly encourage you to verify your information each time you travel!
