All shipping services may be utilized however, we recommend you do not use USPS Express Mail for overnight services. The US Postal Service does not deliver to Westmont - we retrieve our own mail and packages in the morning and the USPS may not have the package processed before we pick up.There is a good chance it will remain at the USPS postal annex another 24 hours before we retrieve it. The USPS tracking site will show the package as "delivered" when they process it, but it may still be in their possession.

For GUARANTEED overnight service, please utilize UPS overnight or FedEx Express overnight options when shipping packages to Westmont College. Those services deliver directly to us in the morning, Monday through Friday. We process them that day for department mail delivery or student pickup by 4:00pm.

From the Los Angeles area or closer, UPS Ground or FedEx Ground will also deliver to us the next Monday through Friday morning. 

Please do not pay for Saturday delivery with ANY service when shipping on a Friday because we will not receive it until Monday.
