When you’re applying to college, the application instructions may ask you to send some or all of your application materials by mail. If that’s the case, you need to make sure you address the application envelope properly, or you’ll risk sending your application materials to the wrong place.Though it is better to send all of the required materials in your application envelope, you can send one recommendation letter to admissions if you need to. For letters of recommendation, there is a specific way they need to be addressed. If you are sending anything else to admissions, follow the same directions as if you were sending the whole application in the envelope.
Find the address of the university admissions office. This will be listed on the admissions page, where there should also be instructions on how to send materials. If you’re addressing an envelope with ATTN (short for “attention”), write the ATTN recipient directly above the rest of the address.
