Do I have to bring anything to my appointment with the Student Ombudsman?

No. When you come into the office, we will give you an intake form to fill out before you meet with the Student Ombudsman. You can do this the day of your appointment or pick it up beforehand if you like. If you have documents that are relevant to your complaint, such as a course syllabus, official SDSU letters, copies of petitions, etc., please bring them with you and we will make copies. If you are out of town and will be meeting with the Student Ombudsman by phone, we can email or fax you the intake form and you can send it and any relevant documents back to us by fax or by mail.
