Regardless of the cost of excess weight, it is usually better to bring all personal baggage with you on the plane rather than shipping it separately (check with your travel agent or airline for size and weight limitations). Even if you spend $100 for excess weight, you will save money, since shipments of larger parcels often cost more than that. Also, you will require the services of an agent to arrange for customs clearance and forwarding of unaccompanied parcels. Such services are expensive and can result in considerable delays.
However, any international student wishing to order and ship personal materials (bed linens, dorm supplies, etc.) to Rollins College may do so. Baggage may be shipped ahead addressed to yourself. Central Receiving will hold all received packages until students' arrival on campus. Please be aware that there is no summer storage available on campus for dormitory residents.
