Receiving Admissions Package

  • All admission letters for international students are sent to the Office of International Education. Our office will then create an immigration document (I-20 or DS-2019) and mail an admissions packet to you.

    The Office of International Education does not mail American Language Institute and American Language Institute/Provisional Admission packets—only packets for exchange, undergraduate, and graduate students.

    Undergraduate Students must pay the $150 tuition deposit in order to receive your full information packet. Please see your undergraduate admission e-mail from the Admission Office for more details on how to pay your deposit.

    Please Note: International Education begins mailing admissions packets in February for students admitted for the fall and summer semesters; it begins mailing packets in October for students admitted for the spring semester. The Office of International Education mails admissions packages via U.S. Postal Service air mail. Standard delivery time is two to four weeks, depending on the country.

    The admissions packet includes the following:

    Express Mailing of Admissions Package

    You may wish to have your admissions package sent by express mail to you (delivered within two to three days). IUP is not able to pay for this service, but students can pay for express mailing using an online service that will allow you to receive your immigration documents through an express-mail carrier. You must use the website provided below—do not go through the DHL or FedEx websites directly.

    Student Shipping: No student ID is required to complete this—simply enter all zeroes (000...).

    Students can create a user name and password to set up an account. Then, carefully select Indiana University of Pennsylvania—Main Campus, Office of International Education, as the university and office from which you wish to create a shipment. You will also need your mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, and credit card information to complete this online request.

    If you have questions or experience problems when using this online service, please use the “help” feature on its web page. Once your documents are mailed, you will be sent an e-mail that will provide you with the tracking number and order details for your shipment.

    In addition to the standard shipping charges, a “Restricted Access Country” service charge of $100 per shipment will apply for shipments to countries where U.S. economic embargoes are in effect, which currently includes Burma (Myanmar), Cuba, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), Iran, Sudan, and Syria.
