Passport Services

Packages over Winter Break

If you are expecting a package during winter break, please contact the Post Office directly by email stansberrybi@appstate.edu or phone 828-262-2246.

The University Post Office offers U.S. Passport application services. 

Current Processing times:

  • Routine Service: 10-12 weeks
  • Expedited Service: 4-6 weeks

You may pick up a passport application at the post office, and once you complete it, the University Post Office will accept your application and send it to the government for processing.  If you need a passport photo, the University Post Office offers this service, too.  So if you are planning to travel outside the U.S., the Post Office can help you with the passport process.  

Please remember that securing a passport is a process that begins with an application and must then proceed through government channels.  Therefore, we are told to advise faculty, staff and students that receiving your passport may take between four and six weeks, so please apply for your passport well ahead of your trip.  

There is an expedited service that will provide your passport faster, but this service is more expensive than the routine service.

Remember that the University Post Office is the place to apply for your U.S. Passport.
