How do I say "send a fax" in 汉语?

For example: "May I fax my application to Beijing University?"

I think 传真 is a noun. I am not sure what to use for the verb form of fax.

谢谢!

    1、传真 can be a verb and a noun.
    发 is a verb, so 传真 is a noun。 发传真 send a fax
    2、May I fax my application to Beijing University? 我可以把申请资料传真给北京大学吗? The 传真 is a verb in this sentence.
    You can also translate the sentence into “ 我可以把申请资料用传真的形式给北京大学吗?” This "传真“ is a noun.

    把我的申请传真给北京大学

    我可以将我的申请传真给北京大学吗?Fax-传真,May-可以吗? my-我的,application-申请,to-到、给,here 传真can be a verb.

    Sending a fax is 发传真

    发传真
    发 is a verb,传真 is noun
    for example:我发了份传真到北京大学(I sent a fax to Beijing University)
    but 传真 can be used as a verb,for example:我可以将我的申请传真给北京大学吗?("May I fax my application to Beijing University?")
