Shipping

In order to ship a package via U.S. Postal Service (USPS), please print your label online at USPS Click-n-ship before bringing it to the post office. This will save you valuable time and energy. If you do not have a ProCard to charge the postage fees, please check out a custodial card so as to avoid after-the-fact reimbursement to your personal account.

In order to ship a package via FedEx, please complete the Fed Ex shipping form and bring it with the package to the Procurement Office in room 313 Irving I. A FedEx courier will pick up packages for scheduled shipments at approximately 9 a.m. Monday through Friday
