UEMS Courier Mailing

The University uses UEMS (formerly eShipGlobal) to manage express mail purchase and delivery. UEMS is an online service that allows you to easily pay for express mail delivery with your credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover cards only). Students can select either FedEx or DHL to deliver their documents. All express mail-related communication will be handled by the UEMS service. For best success in finding an affordable price, ship to major cities or post office boxes.

To pay for express delivery through UEMS, follow these instructions after receiving notification that your documents are ready:

  1. Go to their website https://study.eshipglobal.com and click on “Sign up” to create your account.
  2. Enter the required information and click “Register”.
  3. An activation email is generated and sent to the email address you provided. Click on the link to activate your account. A new internet browser will temporarily open and activate your account.
  4. You will receive another email indicating that your activation was successful. You can now log into the UEMS website at https://study.eshipglobal.com/and create a shipment label.
