What is "Metered Mail"

Mail Center Policy (2.18.1.A.) Metered mail is defined as official College mail from College offices, departments or student clubs, etc., that the Mail Center weighs, affixes postage and posts out.

Metered mail is not for personal use.

Separating Mail

Keep outgoing mail separate from campus mail. Rubber band groups of mail together as follows:

Campus Mail
  • Prescott Campus
  • Verde Valley, Chino Valley Agribusiness Center, Prescott Valley and Sedona (please separate by location)
  • President's Office

Outgoing Mail
  • Stamped - (please bundle 863xx mail separately from all other mail)
  • Metered - (please bundle 863xx mail separately from all other mail)

Sealing Mail

The postage meter sealer can

  • seal envelopes as they are metered
  • seal envelopes without metering them
  • seal envelopes with 5 or less sheets inside
  • seal up to #10 envelopes (9" X 4 1/8")

Envelopes larger than #10 size and those containing 6 or more sheets must be sealed before being brought to the Mail Center.

Bundles of envelopes to be sealed must not have flaps overlapping other envelopes. Each envelope must be separate from the next one. Any bundles brought in with flaps up will be returned to sender to be processed properly.


All outgoing US Mail must be in the Mail Center by 3:00 pm in order to go out the same day.
