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 ship personal materials to Dixie State University may do so. Baggage may be shipped ahead to:
