In alignment with Oregon State University’s response to COVID-19, the office of Student Conduct & Community Standards (SCCS) remains operational and will continue to provide services remotely to students, faculty, staff and the Corvallis community.
If you would like to speak to someone within our office please email [email protected]. Additionally, each of the SCCS team members are available via their individual emails during normal business hours. Please visit our staff directory to find a listing of those addresses. We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you as best we can.
In choosing to join the OSU community as a student, you committed to abiding by the university’s values of accountability, diversity, integrity, respect and social responsibility. And, while our learning and work environments temporarily look different, these values and the community standards as described in the university’s Code of Student Conduct remain at the heart of what it means to be a Beaver.
We can’t stress enough how important it is for students and other members of the OSU community to follow the university’s Physical Distancing During COVID-19 Pandemic Policy and Face Covering in Public and Common Settings During COVID-19 Pandemic policy. Gov. Kate Brown’s Executive Order No. 20-21 requires that OSU establish, implement and enforce physical distancing measures. Section 23 (Other University Policies) of the Code of Student Conduct establishes the expectation that all students will adhere to all OSU policies, including this one.
Please know that student behavior that does not meet our commitment to these shared values and expectations of behavior, inclusive of the university’s newly implemented physical distancing policy and face covering policy, may be viewed as a violation of the Code of Student Conduct and addressed through the established policies and procedures of the code.
If after reviewing this page, you have questions or concerns, we ask that you contact our office via email at [email protected] and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times.
The SCCS office is operational. Our staff is working remotely and can be reached by email:
If you scheduled an administrative conference prior to the university’s change in operations or have recently been advised to schedule your administrative conference, your hearing officer will be sending you information on how you can participate in this meeting via Zoom or over the telephone.
An administrative conference is a private meeting. As such, the university expects that you treat your remote meeting like an in-person meeting. It is expected that you be in a private setting. We will not host meetings while you are driving or not in a confidential environment. The university does not grant you permission to record this meeting.
The code allows for you to bring an advisor of your choice to the conference. The meeting request letter provides you with information on how to include an advisor within the remote conference format.
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.
If the sanctions you have been assigned are to be completed with a campus partner (e.g. Student Health Services IMPACT programming, Student Experiences & Engagement, Career Development Center), contact our office at [email protected] and we will work with you to develop a plan to complete your sanctions.
Both the Preferences, Possibilities, and Decisions Workshop and the Socializing Workshops will be hosted using Zoom technology. You will receive an email reminder 48 hours prior to the scheduled workshop. The email will include your Zoom meeting link and the materials you will use throughout the workshop. If you have any questions regarding this format, please email [email protected].
If you need to submit any completed sanction activities, you may submit them via this form.
Please email [email protected] for assistance with your registration hold.
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.
The SCCS office will continue to process these requests. You can email your requests to [email protected] in either a Word or PDF format, 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. Because we are working remotely, we will be sending all completed disciplinary checks by email. Please include the appropriate email address for the recipient of the form.
