Shipping Methods for I-20 Delivery:

  • Option 1: E-Ship Global- E-Ship Global is the fastest way to receive your I-20. You will need to set up an account and pay for the shipment. E-ship Global will then contact us and we will ship the I-20 to you immediately.
  • Option 2: U.S. Postal Service- The U.S. Postal Service is much slower than using E-Ship Global, but it is free to the student. For some countries, mail service is fairly reliable, but there is no guarantee of when the documents will arrive.
  • Option 3: In-person pick-up- We will allow you to pick up your I-20 in person or designate someone to do it for you. If you choose this option, please let us know by email to issfs@uttyler.edu indicating who will pick up the I-20 and on what date, and we will have the I-20 ready at the ISSFS Center located in UC 2160. If someone else picks up your I-20, they must show proof of identity.
