The Office of the Dean of Student Life at Oregon State University does all it can to help parents and family access University resources. When requesting assistance by phone, fax, in person, or by e-mail, our response can be more effective if you provide us the correct spelling of your student's name (as it would appear on official University records), the student's identification number or birthdate, and the best phone number at which we can reach you.
Your student may know the instructor's expectations via the course syllabus. If there is nothing express about attendance or missed exam or missed due dates the student should check with his/her instructors as soon as possible. Most instructors accept email communication.
In serious situations or when the student is unable to contact instructors, the student or a family member may contact the Office of the Dean of Student Life at (541) 737-8748 for assistance. The Office can provide notification of the absence to the student's instructors and college head advisor. Our notification does not excuse an absence.
Instructors will make the decision whether or not to offer reasonable compensatory experiences to ensure that the student's academic progress in the course will not be unduly compromised Whether the absence is excused or unexcused, the student is responsible for making up all work that is missed.
A parent is often the best early detection device. Express your concern to your student. If you have continuing concern feel free to contact the Office of the Dean of Student Life at (541) 737-8748.
We are committed to the safety and well-being of our students. Each student's circumstance is unique so please call us at (541) 737-8748.
We would welcome the opportunity to assist you; please call us at (541) 737-8748.
