Announcements for Fall 2014

New Automated Form I-94 (Arrival/Departure-Record) Process

Effective April 30, 2013, for travel via air and sea, the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) will no longer issue paper versions of the Form I-94 upon your entry to the U.S. Instead, the Port of Entry Officer will place an admission stamp in your passport marked with the visa status (F1, J1, etc.) and the letters "D/S" to indicate you have properly entered the U.S. Your arrival and departure information will be recorded electronically in the CBP's database. If you are traveling by land, you will be issued a paper Form I-94.

International students may access their electronic Form I-94 online within approximately 24 hours of their arrival to the U.S. All students should keep a printed Form I-94 with their passport in case they apply for future benefits such as work authorizations, social security numbers, or driver's licenses.

For more information about the new Form I-94 process, please visit the Customs and Border Patrol website.

Foreign Registration Hold

Get your foreign registration hold removed before your fall 2014 registration appointment begins! Email your proof of insurance to insurance@csun.edu for review. Include your first name, last name, and CSUN ID number in the subject line of the email. This is the only way you may submit your proof of health insurance. If you are not able to scan and email it to the email address, please contact your foreign student advisor.

Please note: For privacy reasons, students are responsible for emailing their proof of health insurance to IESC. We will not accept emails from any off-campus insurance companies so make sure that you are emailing us the proof of insurance from your email account.
