Forwarding Graduating Seniors Mail

Hooray!  I'm graduating!

Congratulations!  But before you go, please submit a Forwarding Card.  Your address will appear in Banner as (FW).  Your mail will be forwarded to you for up to a year.

What happens to my mail if I don't fill out a Forwarding Card?

If you do not submit a Forwarding Card your Mailing Address (MA) listed in Banner will be your default Forwarding Address until you notify Postal Services.  If you don't have a mailing address listed in Banner, your mail will be "Returned to Sender".

I want to forward my mail to an address that is different from my Mailing Address!

You must submit a Forwarding Card containing the alternate address information.  This is the address that appears in Banner as a Temporary Address (TE).
NOTE: Mail will be forwarded to a Williamsburg address only for students that are in the study abroad or internship programs associated with the university.

What about my magazine, newspaper, music club, book club, etc. subscriptions?

You must provide the company's subscription center with your temporary or permanent address to ensure proper handling of your mail. 
Note: Postal Services will not accept responsibility for delayed or lost mail.

What about packages left or received after May 1st?

USPS packages that are left by you or received after June 1st will be forwarded to your Banner mailing address.  Packages delivered by any other carriers will require a new label to be forwarded.  When you receive email notifications from during the summer for items delivered by non-USPS carriers, please forward them to with your request to have them redirected to you.

Where do I get a Forwarding Card?

Forwarding Cards are available here and at the Student Service Window .
