Telephone Account Codes

Use Your Account Code to charge a call to your department

If you need to place a call from a restricted campus phone, use a telephone authorization code.

Account codes are used to bill charges for domestic or international long distance calls to Cornell department accounts on a call by call basis. An account code may be used on either unrestricted or restricted campus phones. If you are placing a call from a restricted campus phone, you must also use an authorization code. When an account code is used with an authorization code the call will be billed to the department account on the account code.

Student Use of Account Codes when working on Cornell projects: You may allow your student employees to use your account code to place long distance calls. Please keep in mind that an account code may be used from any campus phone. Student workers should be instructed on the proper usage of the account code.
