How to submit your assignments

If your instructor is located at another campus, he/she may ask you to submit assignments through the internal mail. The University's inter-campus, internal mail is a courier bin service between the Prince George Campus and the regional campuses. 

Delivery schedule

Course materials delivered through the courier bins will be picked up on a daily basis and delivered to the appropriate class. Please allow one extra day for distribution of materials on the receiving end. Delivery service is overnight unless otherwise noted.

Drop your materials off at the Terrace campus no later than 3:00 p.m.. If you are receiving materials, the bin arrives in Terrace at 9:30 a.m. Monday to Friday, except holidays. 

If you receive any mail in the bin, we will contact you. If you have materials to send in the bin, please contact us during business hours.
