Summer Mail Information for Returning International Students

1. For summer forwarding dates please visit the Macalester Mailing Services webpage at:

2. Summer forwarding address
You will receive a form in your Student Post Office (SPO) from Mailing Services requesting a forwarding U.S. address during the summer.

For Graduating Seniors

All mail received at Macalester for graduating seniors is held until early August. Please contact Mailing Services if you need more information.

If you are applying for OPT, we will have your mail sent to ISP and care of (c/o) Aaron Colhapp because US Federal Mail cannot be forwarded by law, thus it would be returned to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center and eventually destroyed.
