The University Post Office offers US Passport application services. You may pick up a passport application at our post office or fill out online, and once you complete it, the University Post Office will accept your application and send it to the government for processing. If you need a passport photo, the University Post Office offers this service, too. So if you are planning to travel outside the US, the Post Office can help you with the passport process.
Come to the front window, Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., and ask for passport assistance. Please remember that securing a passport is a process that begins with an application and must then proceed through government channels. Therefore, we are told to advise faculty, staff and students that receiving your passport may take between four and six weeks, so please apply for your passport well ahead of your trip.
There is an expedited service that will provide your passport faster, but this service is more expensive than the routine service.
One of the required documents for obtaining a passport is a certified birth certificate, or if you have a previously issued passport in good condition it may be used in place of the birth certificate. If you are thinking about getting a passport and you are at home for Easter break, then this might be a good time to find your birth certificate or old passport and bring it back with you.
