Choosing to join the Oregon State University community as a student obligates you to a code of responsible behavior. For the purposes of administering the Code of Student Conduct, a “student” is an admitted person demonstrating acceptance of admission through participation in orientation programs or early start programs; a person who is enrolled or dually enrolled; a person enrolled online; a person between academic terms; a graduate awaiting a degree; a person on an approved educational leave; a person currently serving a suspension, including administrative suspension; a person who is not currently enrolled but can register without re-applying; a person who withdraws while a disciplinary matter, including an investigation, is pending; and, a person who is eligible to receive any of the rights and privileges afforded a person who is enrolled.
SCCS staff works closely with many other departments and OSU program staff to ensure that all students can live, work and learn in a mutually satisfying and secure environment. The Office of Student Conduct makes available online forms for reporting incidents involving students.
The forms below are for non-emergency incidents only. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or you can reach the OSU Department of Public Safety by calling (541) 737-3010.
Please complete the Hold Removal Request Form for assistance with your registration hold.
You will receive an email reminder 48 hours prior to the scheduled workshop. The email will include information on how to participate in the workshop. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].
If you need to submit any completed sanction activities, you may submit them via this form.
You can email your requests to [email protected] and we will complete these requests within five business days. Please include your name, ID number (birthdate if you do not have the ID number), and where the completed conduct check should be sent. Records checks that are not submitted by a student must be accompanied by a FERPA appropriate release form. Please include the appropriate email address for the recipient of the form.
If the sanctions you have been assigned can be completed independently and remotely (i.e., reflection assignments, journals, Academic Integrity Course), our office expects that you complete those sanctions in the timeframe previously determined and submit them as instructed in your decision letter. If you do not believe that you will be able to complete the sanction in the given time frame, please email our office at [email protected] and we will work with you as needed.
Your student conduct history is not shared without your written consent.
Having a conduct history is not typically a deal breaker for graduate school applications. Most institutions are looking to learn more about how you have made meaning or grown through adversity or challenges. If you have concerns about your future graduate school goals, be sure to talk with a staff member about your plans for more information and guidance.
Sanctions are determined individually—even in cases in which multiple students were involved. We consider a student’s prior conduct history, if any, the nature of the incident, and how students’ are able or not able to make meaning of their experience during their administrative conference.
Possible sanctions include anything from an educational opportunity to status sanctions. There are times where we can assign a combination of both, depending on the situation. It all depends on the aforementioned factors.
