Shipping Instructions

Please note that IFSO is ONLY able to accept FedEx Express labels

  • The shipping label should have a large "E" on it, this confirms that it is an express label.
  • Do not select:
    • "FedEx Ground" option, this will generate a large "G" on the label
    • "FedEx Home Delivery" option, this will generate a large "H" on the label
  • Departments using ShipIt can still note that they are shipping to a residential address by clicking on the button next to "Residential"  and selecting a FedEx shipping option that is not "FedEx Home Delivery" or "FedEx Ground" under the "Service" drop down menu.
   
  • The FedEx Express shipping option allows for many different transit time options such as Priority Overnight, Standard Overnight, 2 Day AM, 2 Day, Express Saver, as well as International First, Priority, and Economy.

OPTION 1: SHIPPING LABEL CREATED BY DEPARTMENT

The department creates the FedEx label and includes as PDF with J-1 request.

For cases already submitted to IFSO, e-mail the FedEx shipping label (PDF) to ifsoisd@ucsd.edu and/or scholar advisor and provide shipping # and Faculty/Scholar name in the email subject line.
