We are happy to provide expedited shipping of your I-20 and admission letter at no cost to you. Please check the copy of the letter and clip of your I-20 to be sure all information is correct before we mail the documents.

SIUE uses an express mail service that will allow you to receive your acceptance letter and I-20 through DHL, FedEx or UPS typically within 3-5 days. Requesting your immigration documents through express mail is your responsibility. You will have one week from the day of receiving this email to request shipment through express mail. Once you have requested express mailing, the Office of Graduate and International Admissions will pay for and mail your documents.

After one week passes, if express mailing has not been requested, your documents will be archived and you will be responsible for requesting shipment of your I-20 by emailing

To request express mailing of your documents, please visit the following website:

Eship Global will require you to create an account. Once you click the "Sign Up" button, you will create a user name and password. Make sure your user name and password are easy to remember, so you can track the location of your documents. Once you have created your account, please indicate that you wish to receive a package from Universities (Southern Illinois University Edwardsville). After you have selected Southern Illinois University Edwardsvile as the university, select Admissions (New Students) as the department.

To request shipment, you will need your SIUE student ID number (800 number), mailing address, phone number and email address. Please pay close attention to the information submitted, as 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 on the site for step by step instructions. If you have additional questions about using this service, please email
