Online Referral Form

The Dean of Students Office at Syracuse University provides outreach, support and consultation regarding students of concern on our campus. Our goal is to provide comprehensive case management services for students who have personal/health struggles, are in distress, and/or could benefit from additional support and resources.


While DOS referrals are reviewed daily, in coordination with appropriate campus partners, this form should not be used as notification for emergency situations.


To report concerns regarding sexual and relationship violence, please visit the Sexual and Relationship Violence website.

Syracuse University community members are strongly encouraged to report student behaviors that they feel are concerning. Early identification of a concern means being proactive, providing outreach and resources to students, and promoting a community of care for our campus.

Faculty, staff, students, family members, or any concerned person can refer a student to the Dean of Students (DOS) Office.

Once submitted, DOS referrals will be reviewed throughout the day, during business hours (M-F). DOS staff will acknowledge that your referral is received within 24 hours on the next business day. Follow up steps may include contacting you for additional information, outreach to the student directly, and/or any other identified parties with relevant information. If you have questions or concerns and would like to speak with a DOS staff member regarding your referral, contact by phone at 315-443-4357 or email at
