How to Make Long Distance Calls 

Note: As you know, you should not use the departmental access code when making a personal long-distance phone call.

Each long-distance provider will have their own access number. An example using AT&T is below. For other providers, please find the appropriate number on the back of your calling card.

First: Dial 8, 1 to access the outside line.

Example using AT&T:


For a credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover), enter the credit card number and the expiration date shown on the front of the card.
