Telephone Access Code (TAC #) Application

Telephone Access Codes (TAC #) are issued at the Telecommunications Office on an individual basis and treated as confidential information upon signing the application.

TAC numbers are used for off-campus and long distance telephone calling. Students and faculty/staff using this telephone service must pay the phone usage charged to their TAC#.

Once you receive a TAC # you do not have to annually renew it. It will remain active until you graduate or leave the college. If you do not remember if you have already requested a TAC #, please contact the Telecommunications Office at (570) 321-4074 or email Sandy Barnes at barnes@lycoming.edu.

You can apply for a TAC number in one of three ways:

  • In person — Please go to the Office of Telecommunications in the Academic Center, A-2, across from the College Archives.

  • Online — Please fill out the information below and press "Submit Form." You will receive an email (to your Lyco email) within 1 business day with your new TAC number.
