I-20 Shipping Options for International Students

Shippensburg University mails I-20 forms and visa instructions via United States Postal Service (USPS) Express International. Once admitted, to receive your I-20 forms and instructions you must first submit your Enrollment Confirmation Deposit/ I-20. Once the deposit is received and processed, admission packages are mailed within 5-7 business days. The standard delivery time is 4 to 6 weeks, depending on the country it is being shipped to.

If you wish to have your admissions package expedited to you, delivered within 2 to 3 days, you have the option to pay for expedited shipping. Shippensburg University does not pay for this service, but you can pay for express mail using an on-line service that will allow you to receive your immigration documents through an express mail carrier.

A Student ID is not required to complete this – simply put in all “0”s (zeros).   You will need to create a username and password to set up an account. Then, carefully select Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania—International Programs Office as the university and office you wish to initiate a shipment. You will also need your mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card information to complete this online request. 

You may request a shipment either to your foreign address or to a U.S. contact address. If your documents will be sent to a U.S. contact address, please include the name of the person at that address. Pay close attention to the information submitted if any errors in the credit card information or submitting incorrect or incomplete address information will result in a delay in the mailing of your documents.  Note: P.O. Box addresses are generally not preferred by express carriers. If entering a P.O. Box address, be sure you provide the complete physical address where the PO Box is located in order to avoid delays or misdeliveries.

If you have questions or experience problems when using this online service, please visit the FAQ section of this website or email on the Student Shipping webpage.
