CAMPUS POST OFFICE POLICY
The BSC Post Office is located on the first floor
of the Norton Campus Center. Operating hours are
Monday-Friday 8:15 a.m.-4:45 p.m. and Saturday
8:15
a.m.-12:00 noon. To ensure that mail arrives in
a timely manner, be sure to use the correct address
format: Student name, BSC Box Number, Birming-
ham, AL 35254. UPS packages and packages sent
from other shipping or delivery companies first
arrive to the College’s Operations department. This
may delay delivery to the post office. If a package
needs to be sent or received for next day service,
students should use the U.S. Postal Service express
mail service that guarantees next day delivery at the
BSC Post Office. The post office offers the use of
certified, insured, and registered mail a well as deliv-
ery confirmations. In order to ensure the safe deliv-
ery of items, avoid sending cash through the mail.
Students should close and lock their mailboxes after
each use. Simply close the box and turn the latch
once right or left.
VEHICLES ON CAMPUS
PARKING
The College has one main entrance which is
known as the Bruno Entrance and is open 24 hours
a day. Anyone entering the campus must check in
with the officer to register his/her vehicle. Campus
Police may request that all passengers in a vehicle
register as guests. Campus Police also may contact
the BSC student to confirm the visitors as their
guests. If you are a student you must register your
car and display the proper decal. Cars with decals
will be waved through the entrance. It is important
for you to have your car registered and to display
the proper decal. Only the current school year decal
may be displayed. Please contact Campus Police if
you need assistance removing decals from prior
years. All students register their cars during academ-
ic registration. However, if you need to register your
car any other time, you may do so by going to the
cashier’s window on the first floor of the Student
Services building. Parking decals are $60.00. After
you have registered your car, you must affix the
parking decal permanently in the lower left hand
corner of your windshield.
