(Scroll down to Submit)

Phone Line and Long Distance service is available on a special needs basis to all residence hall students who subscribe to and follow regulations concerning Phone Line service. It is the responsibility of students living in each room to provide their own telephone instrument. The student agrees to be fully responsible and pay for all telephone service charges incurred. By completing this form, you accept all financial liability for any charges billed to your account including:

  • incoming collect calls accepted through your telephone line
  • unauthorized fraudulent billable calls placed from your telephone line.
  • billable calls originating from your telephone line that were not billed through an authorization code
  • unanswered ringing if it exceeds the predetermined period which is explained in the student telephone brochure

Some line associated charges (e.g. incoming collect calls or other unauthorized calls) may not appear on your bill until several months after the charges were incurred. You are liable for these charges equally with your roommate.


  1. It is a violation of university policy to:
    1. Direct dial a 1-plus long distance number without an authorization Code.
    2. Dial a long distance number with an authorization code other than ones own. It is illegal for a person to charge long distance calls to another person's authorization code number without their permission. Persons placing such calls to avoid payment for service are subject to prosecution. Students may also be referred to the conduct system of the residence halls for further disciplinary action. The case may be referred to the Department of Public Safety.
    3. Each person is responsible for their own authorization code and all calls placed with it. Charges for any calls placed from a residence hall room using your authorization code are your responsibility. Such charges cannot be disputed as "unauthorized". The initial authorization code will be issued free of charge. If a change in an authorization code is requested, a $10 charge will be assessed.
    4. Students are responsible for any charges incurred by sharing their code.
    5. If an authorization code is lost or stolen, the student is responsible for immediately reporting this to the Telecommunications department so the code may be deleted from the system and a new number assigned.

Phone Line and Long Distance charges can be accessed on the Southeast Portal at All Phone Line charges are added to the student's bill payable at the Cashier's office. Student understands and agrees that Southeast Missouri State University has the right to withhold transcripts and/or deny re-enrollment until payment of all outstanding debt to the University has been made. Telecommunications also reserves the right to alter service and charges as a result of telephone system changes, updates, or malfunctions.



I will notify Telecommunications when I no longer wish to have the Phone Line and/or Long Distance service. I have read and understand the policies and agree to abide by them.
