I-94 card
International students and scholars returning to USM for the fall will see a change in the immigration process at the port of entry. Gone is the little white card known as the I-94 which used to be stapled into your passport. It has been replaced with an electronic process. Since these cards are expensive to replace and often get lost this should be a big help! Please read the attached article to learn more about what to expect at the port of entry.
