Long Distance

Long Distance Calls

Long-distance calls are allowed on university telephones for official University business only.

For personal long-distance calls, employees should use individually purchased prepaid phone cards or personal cell phones.

There are two methods for making long distance calls: Long Distance Access Codes allow you to make a long distance call from any University phone; Calling Cards allow nationwide and international long-distance calling from anywhere in the world.

Long Distance Access Codes

LDACs can be requested by contacting IT Support. A work order will be placed for our Phone technicians to generate a unique code. For billing purposes, an IPO is needed to create the account.

To recover forgotten authorization codes or get a compromised code replaced, contact the IT Support.  A work order will be created and forwarded to a system programmer who will provide the forgotten code or reset your authorization code.

Making a Long Distance Call with your LDAC

  • To dial long-distance, press 9 - 1 - Area Code and Number.
  • The dial tone will change to a beep, enter in your long distance access code followed by #.

Toll free numbers do not require an access code. They can be dialled by pressing 9 - 1 - then the Number.

University Calling Cards

Calling cards are available to University departments to accommodate nationwide and international long-distance dialing.

Obtaining a Calling Card
