How to Get Your I-20
This information is only for degree seeking international undergraduates. If you are admitted to the Applied English Center as a non-degree student, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for shipping instructions.
The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) will process the I-20 (SEVIS immigration document) and compose an admission packet to be mailed to you after you have been admitted to KU. In order to receive your admission packet, you must choose ONE of two shipping options.

We highly recommend this option! If you choose this option, you must make arrangements within 7 days of your admission.
You must go to http://study.eshipglobal.com to set up and pay for your express mail (do not go through DHL or FedEx directly!) Express mailing documents is faster, and usually it takes 3-4 days.
We use a third party service, eShipGlobal, which allows you to select your destination by DHL or FedEx.
