Receiving Documents

Print the PDF for Mailing Options

At Bluegrass Community and Technical College, we understand that receiving your form I-20 and other pertinent documents is an important step in the process of arriving in the United States to study. We are pleased to offer our students three options to receive their documents. Please review each option carefully and decide which option is best for you.

Option One: Postal Mail

This option is only recommended for in-country addresses. We cannot guarantee an arrival date or time when documents are sent visa postal mail.

Option Two: Personal Pick-Up

If a student is already in the United States, they may choose to pick-up their documents in the International Student Services Office. Should a student wish to have someone pick up documents on their behalf, they should complete the International Student Services Office Consent to Release form. Please email Brian Schanding ( prior to picking up your documents to ensure they are prepared for you.

All persons picking up documents must have photo ID or the documents will not be released.

Option Three: Express Mail Shipment

This is the safest option for shipping a student s immigration documents. This option is paid for by the student by creating an account with Eship Global. After you create an account with Eship Global, you will need to provide the company with your BCTC student ID number, mailing address, email address, phone number, and credit card information. You may choose to ship to either a US address or a foreign address, but all address must be accurate and exact in order for the documents to arrive.

Should you have questions about using this option, please contact Eship Global directly by emailing
