Do Not Call Registry Information

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) established a Do Not Call Registry in June 2003 for residents who wish to remove their number from most telemarketers' call lists. Registration should prevent calls from inter- and intra-state telemarketers. In late June, the FTC announced that college and university students residing in campus housing may register their phone numbers with the Do Not Call website.

Virginia Tech students who live on-campus can register online. In order to register online, students will need to provide a valid email address. That email address will be used to provide a confirmation link that will finalize registration.

Quick Points
