Mail may be forwarded to an alternative address for a maximum of 90 days unless on approved leave from the college.
Mail is automatically forwarded to the mailing address on file with the Registrar's Office. If you do NOT wish your mail to be forwarded to this address and have an alternative mailing address for the summer, please fill out the temporary mail forwarding form located in the Self Service area on my.mtholyoke.edu account.
Temporary mail forwarding:
Orders may be submitted throughout the academic year.
Student mail forwarding for summer begins after graduation and reunions have ended; mail is forwarded on a daily basis.
Only First-Class Mail and Periodical Mail is forwarded:
First-Class mail includes bills & statements, personal correspondences and matter closed against postal inspection.
Active boxes for summer:
Undergraduate students remaining on campus for the summer may keep their mailbox open by filling out the Hold Mail for Summer Break section of the Temporary Mail Forwarding and Hold Mail for Summer Break form located in the Self Service area on my.mtholyoke.edu account.
Packages, boxes, etc. that arrive via the U.S. Postal Service are forwarded. Anything arriving via other carriers is returned to the sender with a forwarding address if available. It is the obligation of the sender to forward these items.
Bulk mail is not forwarded.
Bulk mail includes most catalogs, solicitations, and non-profit mailings. Bulk mail is recycled.
We will attempt to forward college / graduate school catalogs and applications, CD, video and book club mailings which require a timely response even if they arrive other than First-Class Mail or Periodical Mail (Note: the U.S. Postal Service has the final control over what classes of mail may be forwarded and may choose not to process bulk rate forwarded mail).
Students who have graduated must register all address changes directly with the Alumnae Office.
