Forwarding Graduating Seniors Mail

Hooray!  I'm graduating!

Congratulations!  But before you go, it is essential that you return your key to Postal Services not to your Resident Advisor(RA) and submit a Forwarding Card simultaneously.  Your address will appear in Banner as (FW).  Your mail will be forwarded to you for up to a year.  If you fail to return your key you will be charged $25.00 for key replacement.

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 a 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?

Packages that are left by you or received after May 1st of the current year will be forwarded to you at your expense!  The charge for this service will be the cost of mailing this item by way of United States Postal Service (USPS) at the "Parcel Post rate" with up to $200 of insurance.

Where do I get a Forwarding Card?

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