  • Separate each account into separate bundles.
  • Use respective mail cards for mail that needs special service (i.e. Priority, Express, Certified).
  • All flaps of envelopes must be down.
  • Separate SEALED and UNSEALED envelopes.
  • Must have an MSU return address on all mail.


Express (Overnight) Mail

Needs to be to MSU Postal Services by 1:00 P.M. to guarantee next day delivery.

All mail leaves campus at 1:30 P.M. each day.


Bulk Mail

Bulk mail differs from 1st class in price (a lower rate) and delivery time (allow an extra 8 or 10 days).

A bulk mailing can result in savings of 65 to 90 percent over first class rates.
