Mail-In Instructions

Mailing Options

The mailing options are only available to students who reside outside of the DFW metroplex and who are unable to come to the OIE to file an application.

Please select one of the following options for the mailing of documents to and from OIE:

  1. Send by Regular Mail.  If you want your documents sent by regular mail, please indicate so when you send in your application/documents.   Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope so that we can send the documents/OPT card when they arrive.
    • Disclaimer--We suggest using a certified mail system (Fedex, DHS) to ensure safe delivery of your card.
  2. Send by Express Mail – UTA uses an express mail service that will allow you to receive your documents through DHL or FedEx.  Requesting your immigration documents through express mail is at YOUR expense and your credit card (Visa, Mastercard or Discover cards only) will be charged upon requesting the service.  E-shipglobal can be used when mailing items to the OIE and from the OIE.  Instructions for both purposes are on the following website.  To request express mailing of your documents, go to the following website (works best with Internet Explorer & Mozilla Firefox browsers).


You must use the website provided above – do not go through the DHL or FedEx website directly.  If you choose this option, please do not respond to this e-mail.  All communication will go through the eshipglobal service, who will notify us that you are requesting your I-20 to be sent by express mail.
If you use this service, you will be required to create your own user name and password in order to create an account.  To request shipment, you will need your UTA Student ID number, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number and credit card information. Please pay close attention to the information submitted, as errors in the credit card information or 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 in the site for step by step instructions.  If you have additional questions about how to use this service, please e-mail support@eshipglobal.com.
