OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Child Attending School

Students receiving child support payments from a parent or guardian and who are attending OSU may be required to provide proof of school attendance. Students must complete the student portion of a Oregon Department of Justice Child Attending School Confirmation Form (ORS 107.108) and bring it to the OSU Registrar’s Office for completion and verification of enrollment.

The Registrar’s Office will confirm a student’s enrollment for the current term. If OSU is between terms at the time of the request, attendance will be based on the previous term. A Verification of Enrollment form may be attached in that situation.

Oregon State University evaluates a student’s ability to work toward their degree in multiple ways. When responding to a Child Attending School Confirmation Form pursuant to ORS 107.108, Oregon State University will use the following definitions in ORS 107.108:

“Attending at least half time” means the student is registered for 6 or more quarter credit hours. Please note that it is the responsibility of the student to request a modified form if registered as a Degree Partnership Program student and is taking credits at both OSU and a community college partner.

Maintaining satisfactory academic progress” means the student has one of the following standings:

  • Good Standing, including by default of meeting admissions standards if no formal standing has been determined from grading yet;
  • Academic Warning if the student is enrolled at least half time and working toward their degree; or
  • Academic Probation if the student is enrolled at least half time and working toward their degree.
