*** NOTICE TO GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE SMC HOLDERS ***
Please be advised that the SMC assignment and retention policy will change effective January 5, 2017, in order to ensure that each undergraduate and graduate student in need of an SMC is able to receive one. In order to be eligible for an SMC, a student must meet both of the following requirements:
- Currently enrolled as a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student for the current or upcoming semester at the Pittsburgh campus (students currently enrolled in a study abroad program qualify as enrolled for the purpose of this requirement), AND
- Currently living in campus housing.
Any student enrolled prior to the Fall 2016 semester will be exempt from the second requirement as long as they fulfill the first requirement. Any student no longer enrolled for any reason will lose their SMC thirty (30) days after their status changes. Carnegie Mellon University Postal Services will have SMCs available to rent at a rate of $35 per semester or $60 per year (including the summer break). For additional information regarding SMC rentals, please visit http://www.cmu.edu/postoffice/policies/box-rental.html.
