What happens if I leave campus?

It's Christmas/Spring Break, Do I check out?

  • Returning students do NOT check-out. Your mail/packages will be held at CPO until you return Spring Semester.
  • Students who are not returning Must check-out of CPO.
    • See below for what happens to mail and packages.

End of the school year, who should complete the CPO Check-Out?

  • Anyone who has had a CPO Box in the last year should complete the CPO Check-Out. This is essential to ensure CPO holds your CPO box for your return, or pass it on to future students. It also helps us get your mail to the correct place.
