International Plans

If you travel internationally on College business, contact Nicole Miller by email Nicole.miller@manhattan.edu two weeks prior to departing for your trip, and include in your email full name, cell number, dates of departure/return and country. Your Manhattan College Verizon account can be temporarily transferred to a Global Plan, which we recommend limited use, Wifi connectivity during your travel and the use of internet/laptop to reduce additional charges. When you return, Verizon will reinstate you back to your original nationwide plan.  

Cell Phone Return/Cancellation
