Conference call-in instructions and the 800 number pass code will be provided to you upon completion of setup. Please remember to forward the instructions to the attendees.
As part of the college’s telephone system, you will need a long distance access code (LDAC) unique to you for use in making long distance calls for business purposes only from your office phone or other campus phones. You should keep your code confidential to prevent unauthorized use. For the purpose of this procedure, a long distance call is defined as any call that requires the number 1+ area code to be entered at the beginning of the phone number.
Before you are able to make an international call, your phone must first be given permission to make these calls. By default, your phone will not be able to call internationally unless otherwise instructed from your department chair.
The ILD Access Request form can be downloaded, printed, completed and sent back to IT for processing.
When you make an international call, you must first dial 8, then dial 011 + country code + city code + local number.
