Starting college is a time of transition for students and their families. For many students this will be their first time living away from home and making their own life decisions. Although this is an exciting time, you may also experience concerns about your student. You and your student will also have to learn how to handle the differences between K-12 and post-secondary environments.

Disability Access Services (DAS) has many resources to assist you and your student through this time of transition. Although we cannot guarantee that your student will succeed or have an easy transition to OSU, we can assure you DAS will work to provide your student with equal access to programs and services at Oregon State University.

Parent Resources

The shift from elementary and high school to college can be every bit as difficult for parents as it is for students. Here are some resources that we hope will provide some clarification and guidance.

Sending Documentation

DAS can only provide accommodations for disability that are supported by documentation from a qualified professional. For additional information about documentation requirements for accommodations at OSU, please visit our Documentation Requirements page (link coming soon).

How to deliver

If you need to submit documentation to the DAS office, please make sure that it includes your student's name and contact information, in case we need additional clarification. You can submit documentation by:

  • Emailing it to
  • Faxing it to our secure line, 541-737-7354, or

Your student also has the ability to upload documentation directly, using the link that they should have received after completing our online registration form.
