DHL Shipping

All students are provided the option of receiving their I-20 document via regular mail or express mail at their own expense. 

We also offer a reduced-rate shipping option for programs who wish to cover the cost of I-20 shipping for their students.   The advantages of this option are:

  • Special government shipping rates that are less than half the normal rate to most countries.  (e.g. the average cost for shipping to China or India is between 14 and 17 dollars in most cases.)
  • No sur-charge for shipments to embargoed countries such as Iran
  • Recruitment:  international student surveys indicate that students react favorably to institutions who send I-20s by express mail.

If you would like to arrange for program-paid express mail service for your international students, please contact Jim Rowan at j-rowa@umn.edu
