My change-of-status application to F-1 was recently approved, but the I-94 expiration date just says, “duration of status.” Is this an error? When does my status expire?


Foreign nationals in F status do not have a specific expiration date noted on their I-94s, as they are admitted for duration of status (D/S). These individuals maintain their nonimmigrant statuses as long as they comply with the terms and conditions of their respective classifications during their programs. (11.Jan.2024)
