Cornell Student Assembly Office of the Student Advocate (OSA) is an executive, non-partisan office created and legitimized by the Cornell Student Assembly. We offer help by connecting any student or student group to resources and offices concerning academic, social, health, financial, and housing concerns. When a student believes their rights are violated, we support them along the process of receiving guidance from different avenues on and off campus.

The OSA serves as a resource hub to facilitate connections to resources pertaining to, but not limited to conduct violations, grade disputes, enrollment issues, financial aid problems, residency concerns, discrimination, and harassment.  We are dedicated to centralizing resources and directing students to the appropriate point of assistance while also accompanying students along the process. All assistance is free and confidential.
