Caution on Expediting Transcripts and Other Documents

When you ask your institution to expedite sending a transcript, be careful that it does not send it to FEF in manner requiring a signature. #1, this forces me to stand in line at the Post Office to retrieve the mail. #2, if for some reason I don’t pick up mail for 10-12 days, then the Post Office may return the item.

In general, you never need to send things overnight or 2-day or priority. Please use 1st class mail. If I need you to send something overnight, I’ll provide you with a different address.

This is of particular concern to people who are attending institutions in other countries. Many US universities now have branch campuses abroad. See if you can get the US main branch of the university to handle sending your transcript to FEF. If you have to send it from overseas, do not send it to our post office box. Many international delivery services will not deliver to PO Boxes. Contact the Secretary for an alternate address.
