University Services has arranged for the U.S. Postal Service to send representatives to the Fairfax Campus for one day to process passport applications. The passport fair will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Room 116.

  • Under 16: $52 for the application fee and $30 for the execution fee, for a total of $82
  • Photo fee for 2 photos: $15

Documents needed are:

  • Passport application (available at the fair); must be an original
  • Proof of U.S. citizenship (birth certificate, old passport)
  • Two identical color passport photos (can be provided at the fair for

    $15)

Children under age 14 must have consent from both parents.

Payment methods: Checks, money orders or cash only. Two checks or money orders, one for the application fee and one for the execution fee, are required.
