INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE TRAVEL and using a College Business Cellular Phone PROCEDURE 

If you plan to travel internationally for college business and use your Washington College Business smartphone while in an International location (if it is capable) for calls and text, that type of service must be activated on your phone first. You “must” request this activation of International service at least seven (7) days prior to your departure by sending an email to ssmith5@washcoll.edu 

You must include the dates of your travel, the country and locations within the country in which you will be traveling. OIT Acquisitions will then get International Calling rate plans, etc. and seek approval from your Budget Center Manager to have the International service turned on, and we will let you know if approved. The college does not encourage use of data service (internet) on college cellular phones while on International Travel due to cost, rather we encourage end users to use a Wi-Fi connection while on this type of travel.
