Departmental Mail Preparation

All mail and packages require  the originating department be responsible for preparing the mail piece, i.e., addressing, wrapping, enveloping, filling out necessary forms. The Mailroom does not a have a regular supply of boxes. We do, however, provide  USPS Priority Flat Rate boxes and envelops.

Always separate on campus mail from off campus mail. For outgoing mail please separate foreign and domestic mail.

All outgoing mail requires your return address to include your department. The return address must be placed in the upper left-hand corner with all return address information above the 2-7/8 inch mark. The proper address is:

Corban University
5000 Deer Park Drive SE
Salem, OR 97317-9392

Remember: Mail service is expedited when prepared for automated processing. In order to get the best results, type the address, omit punctuation, use a two letter abbreviation for the state and include the zip + 4 when possible. Be sure the suite or apartment number is on or above the same line as the street address.

AVOID HANDWRITING ADDRESSES. The line directly above the city, state and ZIP code is the delivery line, so, if there are two addresses, be sure the address you would like to be delivered to is on the proper line.

These guidelines are set by the USPS to enhance service of your mail piece. The Mail Center offers assistance in mail preparation. If mail is improperly prepared, it may be returned to the originating department for correction.
