Postage Stamps

BUS 65 allows departments to purchase and use postage only on an exception basis – for special or urgent mailing needs. All other mailing needs should be met through the Mail Services department.

If you need to order stamps, your purchase must be made through Mail Services, and not through the U.S. Postal Service. The only exception is a situation where Mail Services is unable to meet your need, and will require prior approval from Mail Services.

If you are already familiar with the campus postage purchasing policy and just want to order stamps, go to the on-line order form. Otherwise, please review the campus postage purchasing policy prior to placing your order. Remember that Mail Services requires the original receipt for reimbursement of postage expenses.

Postage Meters

A Department is permitted to have its own postage meters only in a situation where Mail Services is substantially unable to meet their mailing needs (e.g., a remote location). Please review the campus postage purchasing policy for details, and for information on how to request an exception.
