What is Bulk Mail?
Bulk Mail is a service that has no guaranteed delivery standards but is usually delivered in a week to ten days within the United States. University Mail Services (UMS) maintains mailing permits at the Chapel Hill post office. This allows UMS to process large mailings at a cost of about one-third that of First Class Mail. You cannot use the bulk mail permit for international mailings.
Complete the Bulk Mail Request form. This form requires a valid Chart Field string to be completed.
