GUIDELINES FOR WPU'S PERMIT INDICIA AND NON-PROFIT STATUS
An organization must have a permit registered with the United States Postal Service under the special non-profit qualifications to do any mailings at the non-profit rate. The University's Mail Processing Center finances and maintains the postage dollars in its USPS permit account to process WPU's non-profit mail. Gerard LeComte CMDSM is the University's official mail representative for William Paterson University's non-profit status established in association with the permit and to legally protect the University's interests.

Printing WPU's permit on a mail piece for mailing purposes requires the mailing costs to be processed and reviewed by the University's Mail Processing Center. [USE OF CAMPUS MAIL SERVICES]
