Admits and LTA

Long term authorization (LTA) is made up of lists of persons who are allowed into department offices/buildings after business hours. LTA is good for a maximum of one semester/term. This policy is designed to allow students, student workers, or other persons into secure areas in which their supervisor or instructor feels they will need to work. All faculty and staff automatically have permission to be let into their own offices or general areas in their buildings.
No one will be admitted into any building if their name is not listed on the LTA form with an appropriate faculty or full-time staff signature and the date the authorization is good until. All authorizations need to be sent to the Campus Safety Department in writing. A phone call is good for a one-time admittance only.
The Aquinas College Escort Service is used to promote the personal safety of members of the Aquinas College community.

  • This service is provided 365 days of the year from dusk until dawn and for special circumstances. An escort will be provided when a person wishes to come to, or leave campus for academic reasons or for any school-related extracurricular activities.
  • Under no circumstances will Campus Safety escort an individual to party stores, grocery stores, bars or house parties.
  • The escort service is not a taxi service. Rain is not an excuse for a mobile escort, however, during severe weather (i.e., tornado, electrical storm, flood) mobile escorts may be used.
  • If a student lives outside of the one-mile radius boundary limit, he or she may apply, in advance, to the Director to consider allowing the escort.
