Dear International Students, Scholars, and Employees:
We would like to inform you about the new I-94 Automation process. The I-94 Form is the DHS Arrival/Departure Record issued to travelers who are admitted to the U.S., adjusting status while in the U.S., or extending their stay. A US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer generally attaches the I-94 to the non-immigrant visitor’s passport upon entry to the U.S. CBP has announced they will replace the paper I-94 with an electronic admissions and departure record.
The VISA Challenge is a way for International students to meet with international alumni working in the Chicagoland area. Alumni will talk about their job searches and offer advice to international students on navigating the American job market. Robert S.
