Upon student’s admission/acceptance to Indiana State University (ISU), the Office of International Programs and Services (IPS) has two options available for the mailing of your acceptance letter and I-20 which are as follows:
1) Send by Regular Overseas Mail - Overseas mail takes 4-6 weeks. You will receive an email from IPS telling you that you have been admitted to ISU. If you want your I-20 sent by regular overseas mail please reply to this e-mail to confirm your overseas address. When no response is received within 2 days, your I-20 will be sent by regular overseas mail to the address indicated on your application, unless you choose the express mail option (option 2).
2) Send by Express Mail – ISU uses an express mail service that will allow you to receive your acceptance letter and I-20 through DHL or FedEx in 3-5 days. Requesting your immigration documents through express mail is at YOUR expense and your credit card (Visa, Mastercard or Discover cards only) will be charged upon requesting the service. To request express mailing of your documents, go to the following website https://study.eshipglobal.com (works best with Internet Explorer & Mozilla Firefox browsers).
You must use the website provided above – do not go through the DHL or FedEx website directly. If you choose this option, please do not respond to this e-mail. All communication will go through the eshipglobal service, who will notify us that you are requesting your I-20 to be sent by express mail.
If you use this service,
you will be required to create your own user name and password in order
to create an account. To request shipment, you will need your mailing
address, e-mail address, phone number and credit card information.
Please enter ISUIPS2010 in the
student ID field.
IPS will be notified once you have requested a shipment.
I-20s will be sent to a U.S. address only if you are currently a student attending another school in the U.S.
Please pay close attention to the information submitted, as errors in the credit card information or submitting incorrect or incomplete address information will result in a delay in the mailing of your I-20. If you experience any difficulty in registering and processing the shipment, please use the “Help” link in the site for step by step instructions. If you have additional questions about how to use this service, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Please note, all of the above options are also available to students arriving on a J1 visa, regarding the mailing of your acceptance letter and DS-2019.
