Your college should send it

Here's a quote from Form 187 that is available online here http://www.ecfmg.org/forms/form187.pdf

The completed and signed IWA Document Submission Form, any additional form(s), and all required documents must be sent to ECFMG in one envelope.
o If this includes a Certification Statement (Form 183) or a Certification of Identification Form (Form 186)
that is signed by an authorized official of your medical school, this envelope must be sent to ECFMG directly from the office of that official.

o If this includes a Certification of Identifi cation Form (Form 186) that is certifi ed only by a Consular Official, Notary Public, First Class Magistrate, or Commissioner of Oaths, this envelope can be sent to ECFMG by you.
So since your Form 186 has to be signed by medical school official then the whole envelop and package must be sent by your medical college.
