Mailing options

ISSS can mail your new document to you. You may choose from the following options:

Air mail (US Postal Service) - NOTE: This option is not available to those who live in Champaign/Urbana/Savoy. Air mail will be sent to you at no cost. You will need to include a mailing address in your application. Transit times for USPS vary and depend upon the destination; you should allow 6-8 weeks for your document to reach you if you are outside of the US, and up to 2 weeks within the continental US. You should only choose Air Mail if you have ample time to receive your document. Also, please note that there is no tracking number available with regular US mail or Air mail so you will not able to track your shipment.

Express mail (UPS or FedEx) - ISSS cannot pay to send you your documents, but we can ship them to you through UPS or FedEx at your expense.

  • If you are requesting a new I-20 or DS-2019, at the end of your I-20 or DS-2019 application on iStart, there is a drop-down box next to ‘Pick Up Method (choose one)*’ – select ‘I would like ISSS to mail me my I-20.’ There is also a drop-down box for the next field ‘Mailing Method (see instructions)*’ – select ‘UPS/FedEx (pay for shipping label).’
    In the paragraph below that, click on ‘University Express Mail Services’. This will redirect you to another website where you can complete your shipping information for either UPS or FedEx. Your label will be automatically sent to ISSS.

    IMPORTANT
    :
    When you get to the ‘University Selection’ screen, select ‘University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign’.  This will take you to the ‘Department Selection’ screen where you should select ‘INTL Student & Scholar Services’.  


    Once you have completed all of the shipping information, come back to your application in the iStart system and select ‘I have created my shipping label.’
