Recently, I got admission to a PhD program in the United States. And they have prepared my I-20 and the other documents to send me by mail.
They have offered me to provide them my credit card number and expiration date so they can send the documents by express service. They also offered a free regular service too.
How safe is it to provide my card information to an admission team? I know, probably, they will not misuse it, but do they protect it afterward too? Do they have any obligations for the protection of the information.
Is it a common offer in all the USA?
