Areas of Assistance
The Office of Advocacy assists students with academic and personal issues that involve a misunderstanding with the university or any of its administrative units. We handle disputes within a broad spectrum of issues. If you have questions or concerns regarding an entity on campus, or an off-campus facility with close ties to OSU such as The Gem apartment complex, our office can help you resolve the issue.
Our office is funded by student incidental fees. The students we serve are given unbiased and equal treatment under all conditions. The Office of Advocacy strives to assist all currently enrolled individuals. However, the Office of Advocacy is unable to assist in disputes between students. Since all students pay incidental fees, we cannot help either student when their interests are in conflict.
OUR SERVICES ARE OFFERED TO STUDENTS AT NO CHARGE. THE ASOSU OFFICE OF ADVOCACY IS FUNDED BY STUDENT INCIDENTAL FEES AND IS A SERVICE OFFERED BY THE ASOSU.
**The Office of Advocacy does not handle immigration, taxes, copyright, patent, small business or real estate issues.**
