What is the significance of an expiration date on an electronic or paper Form I-94?

The date found on your Form I-94 is your "admitted-until" date. The admitted-until date is the date by which you are required to leave the United States. If there is "D/S" on your I-94 instead of a specific date, you were given a "duration of stay" date. A duration of stay date signifies that you may stay in the country as long as the status under which you entered is valid. For example, if you entered with a student visa, you will be allowed to stay until you finish your course of studies.
