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.
