Special Note about Sending Cash, Gift Cards or important ID documents through the US Mail
As tempting as it is for parents and grandparents to send money to their college student, MICA Postal & Print Services does not recommend sending cash or gift cards through the mail. In the past, letters with cash or gift cards have not always reached their destination. We recommend calling MICA Student Account Sevices for a more secure transaction to deposit money in your student's Flex Account : 410-225-2356 to make a credit card payment over the phone.
If you must send money, please send a pre-paid credit card taped to the inside of a rigid envelope and be sure to put a tracking number on it (Registered Mail or Certified, Return Receipt). Keep the reciept and card information until your student receives the gift card.
Cards that may look like gift cards, such as a student's social security card or driver's license, may also go missing in the US mail. Please report any missing mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If it's important, pay to have it tracked.
