All outgoing USPS Mail is either picked up from University departments by the Mail Delivery Clerk while out on his/her route or brought to University Mail Service by departments for processing. Currently, the USPS picks up all outgoing USPS Mail once a day from University Mail Service during the regular work week at 3:30 PM. All outgoing USPS Mail that is picked up from University departments by the Mail Delivery Clerk is processed and in the hands of the USPS the same day. However, unusual peak periods, equipment down time, and situations beyond our control could cause your mail to be delayed in processing, but is very uncommon. University Mail Service makes every effort to make sure your mail is processed quickly and professionally. All outgoing USPS Mail should be at University Mail Service no later than 3:00 PM in order for Mail Processing Clerks to have ample time to process your mail and get it out that same day. The sooner your mail is brought to University Mail Service, the sooner your mail can be processed and on its way to being delivered to its destination. If you are unable to meet the 3:00 PM cut off time and your mail has to be processed that same day, contact University Mail service at extension 9366 to make special arrangements to get your mail processed. We strongly encourage mailers to plan ahead in their mail production.
