CHANGE OF STATUS EMAIL FOR SMC HOLDERS

If you recently received an email stating that you would lose your mailbox due to a change in status, this may have been sent erroneously. We are aware of the error and are working to correct it as quickly as possible. Be assured that as long as you remain a degree-seeking student at the Pittsburgh campus and are currently living in campus housing, or will be living in campus housing in the Fall semester, you will retain your mailbox. We apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience.

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 continue to 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).
