What do I do if a package I'm expecting does not arrive?

If a package or parcel does not arrive as expected, please promptly report the issue to the post office manager so that efforts can be made to locate the item.

Do I have to notify the campus post office of my address change if I no longer attend BSC or have graduated?

Yes. First, you must notify the U.S. Postal Service of the address change. Second, you must notify the BSC post office manager either by e-mail, telephone, or in person [note: after a student graduates, the BSC Post Office will continue to forward mail for new graduates from the second week in June to the second week in August. The U.S. postal service will forward mail for 30 days.]
