> For all Classes of Outgoing U.S. Mail
Outgoing U.S. Mail 1. The top line should be the "attention" line, if one is necessary. Do not place at the bottom of the address.
2. The next line should be the recipient.
3. The next to the last line must be the delivery address, box number, or rural route number followed by apartment, unit office, or multi-dwelling number. If the apartment number, etc. will not fit on that line, it should be placed on the line above, not below the delivery line address.
4. The last line should include the city, state and Zip code. If there is not enough room to place the city , state and zip together, place ONLY the zip code directly below the city and state.

 

> For Campus Envelopes
Campus Envelopes 1. Make sure to completely cross out all other addresses on the envelope.
2. Print clearly the receiver's Name, Department and Building. Failing to include a complete address will result in delays and mail being returned to sender, if known.
3. If you are using a standard envelope (not an interoffice communication envelope), make sure that Campus Mail clearly appears on the front of the envelope.
