What can you tell me (student) about the 911 service? (link)

W&L’s system is linked directly to the area Emergency 911 notification system. 911 should only be used in life threatening situations. Minor emergency calls should be placed to University Security at 8999 from any W&L extension. You may place a call to E-911 by dialing 9+911. In most cases, the E-911 dispatcher will see the phone number you are dialing from and your location on their dispatch screen.

If you accidentally dial 911, please don’t hang up. Simply identify yourself and tell them there is no emergency at your location. There are cases when 911 is accidentally dialed, especially on international calls which require a 9-0-11 prefix or when using a fax machine. If you hang up, the 911 dispatcher is obligated to pursue the call to try to determine if there is an actual emergency.

Be sure to dial carefully. If you unintentionally contact a 911 dispatcher, please explain your mistake to them and you will have played an important role in making the system work properly (and you won’t be responsible for emergency crews rolling up to your dorm on a false alarm).

What are the rules and regulations for me (student) using the phones? (link)

• You will be billed for unanswered long distance calls if you listen to a ring or busy signal for 30 seconds or more (approximately 4 rings) after completion of dialing. You will be charged for a one minute call. Credit will not be issued for these calls.
• Students must not bill calls directly to their residence hall telephone number (i.e., accepting collect calls and third party calls). The cost of the call plus a handling fee of $20.00 will be charged to the extension to which the call has been billed.
• University telephones must not be removed from their assigned locations. The ROLM-phone will not work with any other system. The actual cost to replace a missing phone or phones damaged beyond repair will be charged to resident of the room. Phones will not be replaced until a report has been filed with the Telecommunications Office.
• If you damage or deface your phone, a charge for damages, time, and materials will be made against your account for any repairs (usually a minimum of $50).
• Students must keep the phones plugged in at all times. If a phone is detected unplugged, a $5.00 fee will be charged. Unplugged phones create problems for our system. The Do Not Disturb (DND) feature has been provided to help you avoid this fee.
• Be aware that some 800 number calls convert to toll calls (900 number). If you connect with one of these numbers, the cost of the call will be passed along to you. Direct dialing of 900 number services is blocked in our system.
• If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact W&L's Telecommunications Office in person. You will be responsible for all calls made prior to your notification in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately.

What can you tell me (student) about using other long distance carriers? (link)

The University's long distance carrier is BTI. If you elect not to use the University's system, you will need to acquire a calling card from the carrier of your choice for the placement of long distance calls. Access to alternate carriers is available through the W&L system by dialing the carriers "800" access numbers. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates.

Washington and Lee University does not charge residents for the alternate carrier access described above. You must have an existing calling/credit card arrangement with the alternate carrier and must not associate that account with your local number nor allow charges to be billed to your local number. A substantial service fee will be assessed for all calls billed back to W&L numbers.

If you find that you cannot dial the alternate carrier of your choice from within the W&L system, please contact the Telecommunications Office. telcom@wlu.edu

What can you tell me (student) about long distance service phone in my campus residence? (link)

Placement of outgoing long distance calls requires the use of your personal 7-digit authorization code. Your long distance code will be in you WebAdvisor account . No deposit is required for long distance service. No subscription fee or monthly service fee will be charged for an authorization code.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your authorization code and you will be responsible for all calls placed with your authorization code. If your authorization code is lost or stolen, or if for any reason you feel the security of this number has been compromised, immediately contact the W&L Telecommunications Office in person. Because of the serious nature of the loss of an authorization code, if the Telecommunications Office is closed, you should contact University Security immediately at 8999.

Since your telephone service is provided by the University, you may not subscribe to any "residential" long distance plan offered by another long distance carrier. However, you may obtain access to the interstate common carrier of your choice by establishing a calling card account with them and dialing the carrier's "800" access number. You may also reach an alternate carrier by dialing 9 + 1010xxx + 0 + phone number (for example, to access AT&T using this method, you would dial 9 + 1010288 + 0 + phone number). Contact your carrier for their three digit code and rates. Be aware that many advertised calling cards have per call surcharges or monthly fees associated with them, so read the fine print before committing to any of these services. Please remember that your alternate carrier calling card account can't be associated with your W&L phone system telephone number. A substantial service fee will be charged for calls billed back to your W&L telephone number. For more information, contact the Telecommunications Office.

Please call the Information desk at extension 4357 if you still need assistance.

What can you tell me (student) about W&L Long Distance Optional Bulk Plans for my campus residence? (link)

Plan #1 was built with the average caller in mind. We will bill you a basic charge of $22.50 each month for 250 minutes of long distance calls within the U.S. That's 9 cents per minute. Continue to use our system beyond the 250 minutes in each billing period at the same low price of 9 cents per minute. Use these minutes to call anytime of the day or night to anywhere in the U.S. Minutes not used during a billing period will not be carried over. International calls are not eligible for this plan.

Plan #2 is for the heavy user and has our lowest per minute rate. We will bill you a basic charge of $35 each month for 500 minutes of long distance calls within the U.S. That's 7 cents per minute. continue to use our system beyond the 500 minutes each billing period at the same low price of 7 cents per minute. Use these minutes to call anytime of the day or night to anywhere in the U.S. Minutes not used during a billing period will not be carried over. International calls are not eligible for this plan.

What are some important notes for me (student) living on campus when using my University phone? (link)
  • Because the system offers PhoneMail, call waiting is not available.
  • To dial any campus extension, dial only the last four digits.
  • On long distance calls, you will be billed for a one minute call if you listen to a ring or   busy signal for 30 seconds or more after completion of dialing.

How does an administrative assistant access and use Datatel to find course and student information in order to support their department and its faculty members? (link)

If you need access to Colleague, please go to https://managementtools.wlu.edu/AccessRequest/ and request an account. Once the proper approvals are granted, an account will be set up for you.

In most cases, when dealing with course and student information, the Registrar’s office will provide some level of training or guidance on how to access the data you require.

 

 

If you already have access to Colleague but cannot remember your login information or have issues accessing the system, go to http://webhelpdesk.wlu.edu and create a ticket under the category of Administrative Data – Colleague Issues/Requests.

I'm getting the error "The maximum number of cookie values has been reached" when I am logged into WebAdvisor. The same issue will happen with Student workflows, Web Time Entry Workflows, etc. (link)

This error may have been caused by opening four or more WebAdvisor hyperlink windows. For example, if a user is reviewing their budget and clicks on the Actuals, which opens a new window, then clicks on a Voucher, which opens a new window;  and the user does not close any of the child windows, and attempts to select another Actual, they will get the error.

All child windows must be closed using the CLOSE WINDOW button. If the user uses the browser's red X to close the windows, they will still get the error and be forced to log out and back in to WebAdvisor.

If this does not solve the problem you may need to review and then delete the webadvisor stored cookies.

In Chrome - Chrome Settings/Advanced/Content Settings/All Cookies &Site Data/Search "WebAdvisor"/ and Click X to to right of webadvisor.wlu.edu cookie to delete it
