Please see our Contact Us page for the following services while our office W2042 is closed in compliance with the Marine Institute’s COVID-19 response measures.
MISU Faxing Service
The MISU offers free faxing of documents pertaining to academic needs and correspondence. This includes any documents relating to student loans and student funding.
Sending a Fax
To send a fax just drop by the MISU office with the document you wish to fax. Any documents that are smaller than a regular 8.5″ by 11″ (such as receipts) should be photocopied beforehand. If needed, a cover sheet can be provided. The MISU does not have a photocopier. Therefore, if any student requires photocopying, they will have to do it before dropping by the MISU office to send a fax.
Receiving a Fax
If you require a document to be faxed to you, you must let the MISU office know beforehand and present your student card. Once notified, the fax will be put aside until it can be picked up. If you do not give notice, the MISU will not guarantee that your fax will be received.

The MISU coordinates a peer-tutoring network. The purpose of the network is to help students find good tutors fast. If you are interested in making some extra cash, come down to the MISU office and give your name, contact information and the subjects for which you are able to tutor. Depending on what you need, we will help you either get a job tutoring someone or we will put you in touch with a tutor who can help you with your studies.
