I-94 Fact Sheet

The I-94 is given to students as they enter the country. It is very important to understand this document and hold onto it.

International Students & the DMV

Many students wish to drive in the U.S., which is possible once students have been on campus attending classes for at least two weeks. Follow the above instructions to ease the process at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
