Mail to be metered and sent to the post office should have an Organization Code placed somewhere on the letter or flat. If several pieces are bundled together, the Organization Code only needs to be on the first piece. Single letters or flats with no Organization Code will be rejected. If there are 10 pieces or more under the same Organization Code, a metered mailing form will have to be filled out.
Metered Mailing Form
The metered mailing form can be found here. This form indicates the type of postage required as well as which department and person is sending out the mailing. This form is required for every mailing that contains 10 pieces or more under the same Organization Code.
UPS packages can be sent through The Hub mailroom with an Organization Code. Tracking numbers will be given back to the department by request. We do not sell boxes in the Student Union II mailroom for UPS ground shipping, so please have packing materials prepared before arriving. We do carry UPS express boxes, express envelopes, and express pad packs. UPS packages cannot be processed after 3:00 p.m.
Fedex can no longer be processed with an Organization Code in the mailroom and any waybill under the George Mason University general account will be rejected. If Fedex must be used, an account for the department must be created through Fedex and paid for with the departments P-card.
Completed FedEx packages can be dropped off at both the Student Union II mailroom and Patriot Postal and Packaging Center by 3:00 p.m. for same day pickup.

The University has a Permit No. 1532 with the Post Office to prepare bulk mailings. This provides the University with the ability to process large mailings at a cost of about 1/3 that of 1st class mailings. University departments as well as bonafide student or faculty organizations can use the permit. You cannot use the bulk permit for international mailings.
