How to get it

Your Telecommunications Liaison can determine if you are authorized to make long distance calls and provide an authorization code. You can find out who your liaison is by going to the online liaison directory. Telecommunications liaisons should use the Telephone/Data Services Order Form to order long distance service.
Faculty and Staff will be given an authorization code to be used when placing long distance calls. Charges associated with long distance are completely covered by the University. While you will use your authorization code to make the call, you will not be responsible for the charges.
