As a cost saving measure the Klamath Falls campus Student Success Center and Portland-Metro campus Student Services offices will be operating under reduced hours and will be closed on Fridays through fall term. We appreciate your patience as we adjust to these changes.

Summer Term 2020 - COVID19 Response

All Disability Services accommodations, intakes, and appointments for Summer Term will be provided remotely per The State of Oregon's Stay Home, Save Lives Executive Order and the University's response to COVID19.

We understand this is a difficult time for many and remote services are not the preferred method, nor can they be truly accessible for every student. However, it is imperative that we follow these guidelines to ensure the safety of our students, staff, faculty and community.

Disability Services staff is working diligently to ensure every qualified student receives the accommodations necessary to provide them with equitable education services and learning opportunities during this time.

If you have questions please feel free to email us at access@oit.edu.

You may also contact us by phone: Klamath Falls Students: 541-851-5227 | Portland-Metro & Online Students: 503-821-1305

Voicemails will be returned within two business days.
