International Student Mobile Phone Opportunity

*NEW* International Student Mobile Phone Opportunity

This unique opportunity is only available through the Lycoming College agreement with Verizon Wireless. It allows international students studying at Lycoming College the chance to purchase a phone and plan that does not require a hefty security deposit or 2-year contract. Here is how the program works:

New or Changes to Service

A Verizon Wireless representative will be on campus once a semester for new students to apply for a new line of service and for current students to upgrade their existing phone. This will be the ONLY time during the semester you can sign up for new service or phone upgrade. To find out when a Verizon Wireless representative will be on campus, or to inquire about this opportunity, please contact Lori Ulmer at

  • Each student is responsible for the retail purchase price of a Verizon Wireless mobile phone or a Verizon SIM card through Lycoming College’s Information Technology Services. Verizon SIM cards will only work with unlocked phones, approved for use on the Verizon network.
  • The plan includes unlimited voice within the United States, unlimited messaging from the United States to anywhere in the world, and unlimited data and hotspot on 4G LTE or 4G HD networks within the United States.
  • Students are encouraged to register their phone on Lycoming College’s wireless network through Information Technology Services to minimize their data usage which will be limited to 600Kbps for usage exceeding 25GB.
  • Students on the plan receive a monthly invoice from the College and are required to pay that amount at the Business Office upon receipt. This plan is $35.00 a month (not including tax, fees and surcharges) while in the United States and does not include any roaming charges should you travel internationally or make international calls. Terms and conditions are subject to change as directed by Verizon Wireless.

Traveling Internationally

Should you travel outside of the United States during your time at Lycoming College, it is your responsibility to contact Lori Ulmer at the I.T. Service Center at least 5 days before traveling. You will be responsible for paying all incurred fees if you travel internationally without an international plan on your mobile phone line.

Suspension of Service

Please be advised that you may only request to suspend your line of service for summer break. It is the student’s responsibility to request this suspension. Your suspension will start June 1st. Suspensions are for a maximum of 90 days. After the 90 days your mobile number will reconnect, thus continuation of the billing.

Disconnecting Service

You may disconnect your line of service at any time. Graduating students will retain ownership of their purchased mobile phone and must choose to accept financial responsibility through Verizon Wireless, port their phone number to another carrier or disconnect their line of service.
