Long-Distance Authorization Codes

A long-distance authorization code overrides the Facility Restriction Level (FRL) feature on the users’ primary phone. The feature allows the user to call outside of their calling radius restrictions. Long distance calls placed with an authorization code are billed directly to that person or their department’s assigned account.


All faculty and staff
