Receipt and Delivery of Priority Letters and Packages
Mail Services uses an automated package tracking system to manage all overnight and priority packages from the sender to the recipient. Once a package is received by Mail Services, it is logged into this system. Upon delivery to the appropriate department, the recipient will be required to sign for the package.

Processing of Outgoing Mail, Priority Letters and Packages
All outgoing general, priority and interoffice mail should be placed in a department’s outgoing mailbox for pickup. Outgoing mail that is not prepared for afternoon mail delivery should be delivered to Mail Services to ensure same day receipt by the U.S. Postal Service.

Note: For all packages, please identify the method of shipping (USPS, Federal Express, UPS., etc.).  All packages with general labeling only will be sent through the U.S. Postal Service as standard first class mail with no insurance or method of tracking.

Postage
Postage charges are prepaid by the university. Departments will be back-charged on a monthly basis for postage used. General postage can also be purchased as follows:

  • Postage Stamps: Stamps can be purchased on-line at USPS Page
