Placing Telephone Orders

For orders by telephone, you should provide the following information to the merchant:

  1. Your name — c/o Goucher College
  2. Your Visa account number
  3. The college's address
  4. You will not be required to fill out a purchase request.

Instead, you need to request that the following information be put on the package label:

  • Contact name
  • Department/room number
  • "Visa" purchase

NOTE: It is very important that "Visa purchase" is noted on the package label, as well as your name and department, so your order can be delivered to you promptly once it is delivered to the Receiving Department.
