International Student Reporting
REPORT YOUR LOCAL ADDRESS
Students in the US on the F-1 student visa must report their address to their DSO (Designated School Official) and report again within 10 days if they change their address. This is US immigration law, so do not forget to update your address is you move, any time during your stay as an F-1 visa student.
Please use the below form to report your current address. If it changes- report again with this form or email to [email protected]. It must be reported in writing as instructed here in order to have proof that you properly reported.
ACCESS YOUR MOST RECENT I-94 RECORD
As well, after each entry to the US an I-94 Arrival record is created and must be obtained from this website: https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94
Please access your “Most Recent I-94” and download it and save as a pdf or in a .doc or .docx (Word) document. Don’t confuse this with your Travel History, which you can also view. But you need to view and save the I-94 record.
NEW STUDENTS must send in their I-94 after their first entry to the US- please use the form below.
Any questions, please email Lenore Lyons ([email protected])
Please complete the below form to report your address and upload a pdf file of your I-94 record for your first entry to the US as an F-1 student.
ALL F-1 STUDENTS: It is your responsibility to check your I-94 record after each entry to the US!! While this is not well explained by either the US Consulate or CBP at entry, it’s extremely important to make sure your info was correctly entered in the system. They sometimes make errors when entering information or may even admit you in the wrong visa category, which can cause you later problems.
If you cannot access your record, wait a week after your entered the US and try again. If not successful, contact your DSO (Lenore Lyons) for instructions on how to get it corrected.
You don’t need to send in the I-94 for subsequent entries after the first on- but it’s extremely important that you view it and save for your own records!!
Please get in the habit of ALWAYS viewing your I-94 record every single time you enter the US (whether during your time as a student or in any other visa category)
