During the summer the Postal Center staff will make every effort to forward first class mail to the student’s permanent address that is on file. Second or third class mail, including magazines, newspapers, etc., will NOT be forwarded. It is recommended that students change the address with all correspondents, especially banks, credit card companies and magazine companies, to ensure delivery.
Forwarding first class mail to a different address, other than the student’s permanent address, requires a completed green change of address card which are located at the Postal Center.
Graduating students who need to change their permanent address should visit the Alumnae House.
New and continuing students attending summer school and living on campus, should visit the mail room on the first day of the summer session to pick up mail box combinations.
