Obtaining Your Long-Distance Authorization Code

Faculty and Staff

Rensselaer faculty or staff members must have an authorized department contact in order to receive a long-distance authorization code. Contact Jacqueline Farmer either via a written e-mail request or by fax to (518) 276-8041 with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Department contact
  • Department
  • Room number
  • Account number to be charged
  • Whether you need domestic or international access

It normally takes 24 hours for the authorization code to be activated. You will receive notification of your authorization code by e-mail.
