When will I receive the Form I-20 (F-1 student) or DS-2019 (J-1 student)?
Once your I-20 Application or DS-2019 Application and supporting documentation has been submitted to the Office of Student Services and your tuition deposit is paid, your I-20 or DS-2019 will be created. After your I-20 or DS-2019 has been created you will receive an email with information that will allow you to start the visa application process while waiting for your documents to arrive. In this email, we will also confirm your preferred mailing method for your documents. The I-20 or DS-2019 will be mailed with your original Admissions letter, Scholarship letter as well as any original document that was submitted with the I-20 or DS-2019 Application (financial documents, etc.)
If you would like your documents sent by regular first class mail, then the Office of Student Services will need to confirm the mailing address.
If you would like to have your document sent by express mail you will need register your FedEx or DHL request with eShipGlobal: https://study.eshipglobal.com/ Express mail instructions are also in the I-20 or DS-2019 Application.
