We will reprint your form, and you can arrange to have it shipped to you by using eShip Global. J-1 students and scholars can submit a DS-2019 replacement request.
    • To Receive Documents: Once requests have been fully processed, documents will be sent to you based on your preferred shipping method in eShip Global (available for mailings within and outside the US).

This global pandemic is hitting so many nations across the world all at the same time. Unknown and ambiguous circumstances of this magnitude can feel overwhelming. We remind you of campus resources such as CAPS, UHS, the Dean of Students, and Wolverine Wellness, which remain available to you during this time. We wish you the best as you navigate these next days and weeks and are here to support you.
