04/30/2013 - CBP Announces New I-94 Automation Process

On April 30, 2013, the U.S. CBP (United States Customs and Border Patrol) has stated implementing the automated version of Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record. Students will no longer receive a paper I-94 card upon entry by plane to the United States. Instead they will be able to access their I-94 numbers through the CBP website.
