Personal Call Reimbursement

Generally, the use of the University cellular service is intended for official business. However, if personal cellular calls are made with supervisor approval, the minutes are to be reimbursed to the University on a monthly basis at the additional cost per minute rate that corresponds to the subscribed calling plan even if the specific calling plan minutes are not exceeded. Contact the Telecommunications Department to find the exact rate.

Reimbursements should be made at the Cashier's Office and receipts should be kept at the department for auditing purposes.
