University Express Mail Services (UEMS)

UW-Platteville offers you the opportunity to receive or ship your documents through a safe, quick and dependable delivery service called eShipGlobal. Requesting your documents through express mail (Fedex) is at your expense, and your credit card (Visa, Mastercard or Discover cards only) will be charged upon requesting the service.

You must use the University Express Mail Services website – do not go through the FedEx website directly. All communication will go through the eShipGlobal service, who will notify us by e-mail that you are requesting your documents to be sent by express mail.

If you use this service, you will be required to create your own user account. To request a shipment, you will need:

  • Your mailing address
  • Your E-mail address
  • Your phone number
